Assistance League of Pasadena recognized the achievements made by 21 Pasadena Unified middle school students on February 15th at the “Very Important Performers (VIP)” celebration. Each of the seven Pasadena Unified middle schools selected students who had demonstrated dramatic improvements in academics, attendance, and citizenship. The goal of the VIP award is to provide encouragement to students who have chosen to get the most out of their middle school experience.
