Several students and teachers from the Long Beach Unified School District were recently recognized during the Port of Long Beach’s “Celebrating Education” event on Aug. 2. 

The event honored the class of 2023 summer interns — which included 22 LBUSD students — and recognized 13 LBUSD educators who participated in the Port’s 2023 Teacher Externship program. The educators include high school pathway coordinators Ron Bazer, Nancy Brown, Elizabeth Frayre, Valerie Gonzalez, Adrienne Hippolyte, Joel Jelinowicz, Daniel Miyake, Hajra Saeed, Midori Sanchez, Gina Rae Stolpestad and Emily Thompson; and Renée Shipman and Mikle McBride, both assistant directors of the LBUSD Career Pathways Office.

In addition, multiple college scholarships were awarded to local students, including 25 LBUSD students. The recipients include Adriane Lance Bayaras, Jonas Carrillo, Jose De La Mora, Anthony Fuentes, Jennifer Funes, Kailani Kainoa-Rivas, Shah Karim, Ti Na Le and Bryan Villasenor of Cabrillo High School; Shaun Afanes, Hector Aldana, Darikson Aguirre Medina, Adrian Arevalo, Angelika Baliling, Humberto Payan Rojas, Noe Ramirez and Alicia Valiente of Jordan High School; Mitzi-Anne Salazar of California Academy of Mathematics and Science; Alexander Vann of Millikan High School; Gavin Carey, Sienna Groves and Konrad Schreiber of Poly High School; David Chansy and David Thornton of Sato Academy of Mathematics and Science; and Noah Kushner of Wilson High School.

Over the summer, McBride High School students Aldir Moreira, Joseph Valdespino, Alexis Wallace and Kimberly Rosas attended an environmental summit in Yokkaichi, Japan. During the week-long international trip, they exchanged environmental ideas with students from Tianjin, China and Yokaaichi, Japan. The students also received a presentation from the Japanese government and a tour of local environmental facilities, including the Port of Yokkaichi.
