Oceanside Students Recognized as Rising Stars

By   /  November 15, 2022  /  No Comments


Oceanside, CA- Congratulations to November’s Rising Stars:

  • Vaeh Dunn from Surfside Educational Academy
  • Julia Metzger from Oceanside High School
  • Joseph Molano from El Camino High School
  • Noe Hernandez from Coastal Academy High School

These 12th grade students will be honored for rising above their circumstances Tuesday, Nov. 15th, from
8-9:30 a.m. when the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce hosts its Rising Star Student of the Month
program for the 2022-23 school year. The event will be at the William A. Wagner Aquatic Center, 3306 Senior Center Drive, Oceanside.

The program, in its second year, aims to champion students who have overcome significant challenges in
their lives, but have managed to keep, or get back on track with their education. The Chamber honors a high school senior from each of our area high schools at the monthly breakfast events.

Each school principal collaborates with his or her staff to nominate one 12th grader per month. The students must be college or vocational school-bound and they should emulate the program’s mission statement: “Convening the business and education community to honor Oceanside seniors for rising above adversity by demonstrating character, integrity, school and community engagement that make our city shine like a star.”

Honorees are then eligible to apply for higher education scholarships that will be awarded at the end of the school year. While scholarships may be awarded for a wide variety of fields of study, the Chamber and its Workforce Development Task Force will be asked to keep in mind the emerging industries in the region
including technology, biotech/life sciences, and advanced manufacturing.

During the event, the school principals and the student’s parents and mentoring teachers will share what sets this student apart from other students and provide examples of their character, integrity, passion, focus and perseverance that has made them such a Rising Star on their campus and in our community. Oceanside’s Mayor Esther Sanchez is set to speak and she will provide commendations to each Rising Star along with elected officials Supervisor Jim Desmond, Assemblywoman Tasha Boerner Horvath, Senator Pat Bates and Congressman Mike Levin.
