Polytechnic High School recently accepted top state honors for its activities program from the California Association of Student Leaders. The school was one of only 30 out of 800 high schools to win.
Unbeknownst to Poly Activities Director Terry Speir, the activities directors at other Long Beach Unified School District schools nominated Poly to receive this honor. They sleuthed for many months putting the necessary paperwork together for submission. When Speir received the letter of congratulations, she was a bit confused, as she had not submitted her own school for the distinction.
Poly student leaders accepted the award at the CASL State Conference on April 2 in Costa Mesa, with Poly expressing appreciation to the other high schools for recognizing their activities program.
