As the new school year enters its third week, some students across the Corona-Norco Unified School District still lack the necessities to help them excel. Materials such as backpacks and notebooks should be accessible to every student. Mike Ilic, Director of Student Services, agrees with this notion. Ilic displays a passion for helping foster and homeless students that reside on our district. He makes it his mission to ensure they stay in the district and graduate.
The opportunity to help these students came when Deborah Kristianto, a Wells Fargo representative, contacted the district with hopes to also help disadvantaged youth.
