During its January 17 meeting, the Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD) Board of Education recognized Athletes and Coaches of Character from each of the district’s seven comprehensive high schools. The coaches and student athletes represent a wide variety of sports and help develop and enrich GGUSD athletic programs by modeling respect, teamwork, and a winning attitude.
“We know that athletics help make the high school experience memorable and rewarding and our Athletes and Coaches of Character play a significant role in that,” said Lan Nguyen, GGUSD Board of Education President.
The Athletes of Character are student scholars who excel in academics, serve as leaders in their sport, and are role models in their schools. Congratulations to Viviana Flores, Girls Soccer, for being chosen as Los Amigos' Athlete of Character!
