Habitat for Humanity honors CHS students

Thirty high school seniors — including Ashlund Stanger and Lincoln Roston of Claremont High — were honored recently as community builders at a ceremony by Pomona Valley Habitat for Humanity.

State Senator Susan Rubio and San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman were keynote speakers and presented medals and certificates to the students.

All public, private and charter high schools in Pomona Valley Habitat’s 16 city service area were invited to participate and nominate their school’s honoree representative.

“Volunteering is a priceless gift you can give to your community,” said Pomona Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Christine Charland. “Volunteering acknowledges that we need each other, that everyone has a struggle or story; honoring these young people and encouraging others to give back is how we build community.”

Other honorees included Rishika Ravichandran, from Bonita High School; Matthew Fernandez and Tyler Tancredi, from Damien; Starlene Bailey and Milana Mattson, San Dimas; Joshua Martinez and Valerie Solis, Pomona; Samuel Ramirez, Ganesha; Mia Ojeda, Garey; Rhiannon Rodriguez and Katherine Skeers, Pomona Catholic; Noelle Chakbazoff and Nadia Mitchell, St. Lucy’s; Evanie De Leon, Arrow; Everet Still and Christina Banuelos, Bishop Amat; Elena Rossen and Jocelyne Delgado, Chino; Aiyana Martel and Eunice Chung, Covina; Julissa Carrillo and Brooklyn Cornell-Norman, Diamond Ranch; Jayann Peevy and Grace Fegert, School of Extended Educational Options; Crystal Elizabeth Tew and Kevin Casiano, Village Academy; and Isabella Quezada and Kiara Olivares, from Mt. SAC Early College Academy.
