Rep. McCarthy Honors East Kern and Antelope Valley Students
Students from East Kern and Antelope Valley were honored yesterday with the 23rd Congressional District of California Merit Award presented by Congressman Kevin McCarthy.
McCarthy hosts this annual event to recognize students and teachers from the 23rd Congressional District who display excellence in and out of the classroom.
Each student awarded had an opportunity to nominate an educator for the 23rd Congressional District of California Inspirational High School Educator Award. Those educators were also recognized during the ceremony.
“Congratulations to the amazing students and teachers from East Kern and Antelope Valley being honored,” said McCarthy. “To the students, you are moving on to even greater successes. Know that you really can make a positive impact in your communities. This is a lesson I’m confident that you have learned from the very teachers you have nominated. And to the educators, I hope you realize the significance of your work and just how much you have helped to shape our future leaders.”
