Making Connections in the Community

As Visions approaches its 25th anniversary, we are continuing to get involved in our community and establish partnerships with thought leaders in the charter school world and beyond. Along with Improve Your Tomorrow’s Sneaker Ball, Visions staff recently had the opportunity to sponsor and attend two more important events in the community, APAPA’s National Unity Awards Gala and RAM’s Best Business Awards Ceremony.

Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs’ National Unity Awards Gala

At APAPA’s annual National Unity Awards Gala, community leaders, honorees and presenters gathered to create awareness of the AAPI community and provide an opportunity for their collective voices to be heard. As sponsors of the event, Visions leadership, including administrators Josh Imler, Shannon Alward, Christy McKinnis and Jamee Block, along with Chief Academic Officer Dr. Micah Studer and Board Member Terrence Shelton, had the opportunity to attend and were in close company with congressmembers, assemblymembers and other political leaders. We are honored to have had the privilege to represent Visions and our diverse student body.

Russian American Media’s Best Business Awards Ceremony & Gala

Superintendent Dr. Steve Olmos, Chief Academic Officer Dr. Micah Studer and Principal Gregg Moses also had the opportunity to attend Russian American Media’s Best Business Awards Ceremony & Gala in November. This event featured the most successful companies, community leaders, volunteers and artists in the California region. We were proud to be a sponsor and appreciate our partnership with RAM and the Slavic community.

By making these connections in our community, we are able to raise awareness about the programs we offer and have the opportunity to reach more students.
