Good evening. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you tonight to our District Celebration. My name is Sophia Gunzon, and having been elected by my peers, it is my pleasure to serve as the MUSD Student Board Member.
My Student Board Member alternate, Andrew Brunn, is also in attendance. He will be assisting with distributing certificates to honorees tonight.
We are grateful for the presence and support of the Manteca Unified School District Board of Trustees, President Deborah Romero, Vice President Stephen J. Schluer, and Trustees Sam Fant, Nancy Teicheira, Evelyn Moore, Michael Seelye, and Kathy Howe.
We also acknowledge our district and site leadership.
Most of all, we wish to welcome our district honorees who are gathered here tonight with their family members. We know that without the support of family, it would not be possible for us as students to accomplish the many things that we do.
Tonight, we are focusing first on some recognitions that truly deserve special attention.
