Vantage Point graduate takes next step with Path4Ward
Path4Ward is a new program in Adams 12 Five Star Schools that has been benefiting students for the past two years. Students who qualify for free and reduced benefits and graduate early from high school are eligible for a stipend to apply to their postsecondary pathway.
Kenya Pasillas Lopez, an early graduate from Vantage Point High School, completed her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program through PIMA Medical Institute in March 2023. She was hired immediately in her field at the Center at Northridge working with patients in need of complex nursing care. Kenya struggled while in school, but decided to graduate early in order to get an early start to her career. She pursued a CNA program to ensure all patients are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. She utilized her Path4Ward funds to pay for the entirety of her tuition and certification exam.
