Villa's 8th Grade AVID Standouts
Every year, Orange County AVID Intermediate schools are asked to select one 8th grade student that epitomizes AVID. These students must then complete a rigorous application process that includes an essay, a teacher recommendation and includes academic and community achievements.
AVID 8th Grade Standouts are then invited to a celebration ceremony hosted by Angel's baseball at the stadium.

"Some advice I have for my peers is that no matter what obstacles you face it's not about being the best it's about being better than you were yesterday.And to always remember that sometimes you must hurt in order to know,fall in order to grow,and loose in order to gain.So don't be afraid to change your destiny and have the courage to change it into a new one it's never to late."
