My name is Alfredo Espiritu. I graduated from Centennial High School in 2017 and was in AVID for 5 years (4 in high school and 1 in middle school). The most memorable and rewarding time I remember in AVID was the junior college trip. It not only gave me insight into how college would feel, but also gave me an extra reason to keep pushing myself toward higher education. I am in my second year at Norco Community College. I plan to transfer to Cal Poly Pomona and graduate with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Heidi is a Centennial alumnus and has been an AVID tutor for four years at Centennial High School. As a product of the AVID program, Heidi is extremely grateful of all of the opportunities that AVID has offered her. She believes that AVID is the reason behind her academic success. One special thing
about this program is that both the teachers and the structure are all geared towards the success of its students. When Heidi was an AVID student, she felt welcome by her teachers and peers. She liked the fact that she was in a class where everyone had a set goal of going to college. Heidi is currently a
fourth year at the University of California, Riverside where she is working towards a Bachelor's of Science in Anthropology with a Minor in Education.
Jasmine graduated from Corona High School in 2014. She didn't have a chance to participate in the AVID program in high school but she deeply regrets it. After being an AVID tutor for 4 years she has had the chance to see how the teachers and structure can guide the students towards opportunities that will help them succeed in college. AVID has opened up her eyes to new possibilities that she wasn't aware of in high school. That is why she advises students to participate in the AVID program. She implements everything she encourages in the AVID program and she says it has “only beneﬁted her academic journey.” The summer after graduation she started classes at Norco Community College where she received her Associate Degree for Transfer in Business Administration. In Fall 2017, she will continue her education at California State University, Long Beach where she will work towards her Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Management. When Jasmine isn’t at work or at school she enjoys going on adventures with her family and friends. Her favorite adventures involve food, live music, and puppies.
Noely graduated from Centennial High School in 2010. She was in AVID since the 8th grade and was so glad that she joined the program. Noely believes that she wouldn’t have known how to apply for college and what to do in the FAFSA if it weren’t for AVID. Noely loves math and will always do her best to help students understand it (and hopefully learn to like it). Noely recently graduated from California State University, Fullerton in Mathematics and Child Adolescent Development. Her next step is to start the credential program next year and will hopefully start teaching math really soon! Noely loves her family (including her dog),her jobs, friends, and especially coffee. If any of you ever need some advice about math, college, or anything in general, feel free to ask Noely!
