Congratulations to our Hickory PTA Scholarship Winners, Karis Kim, Hina Kurono, and Maya Okada! The PTA will be presenting the awards to the recipients at the association meeting on Wednesday, 3/27, at 6:30pm in the Cafeteria.

Name: Karis Kim

School: South High School Class of 2024

Award: Best All Around Student

“Karis was always a very organized student with amazing writing skills. She always went the extra mile to fully complete her assignments which made them true masterpieces. She was also a quiet thinker and very kind to everyone.” - Mrs. Bond

Name: Hina Kurono

School: Torrance High School Class of 2024

Award: Academic Achievement

“I’m so impressed by the accomplishments she has made since she left Hickory. Hina was always responsible and respectful while she was a student here at Hickory. She always strived to achieve high goals, and was a great Room 15 student. I know her future holds great things for her. I wish her all the best!” - Mrs. LoGrande

Name: Maya Okada

School: Torrance High School Class of 2024

Award: Community Involvement

“As a fifth grade student in my first class at Hickory Elementary, Maya left a lasting impression on me, as she was a very bright, talented, and creative young lady who always went above and beyond. She was kind to everyone, helpful to myself and her classmates, and had a great sense of humor (I could always count on her to get my jokes, too!). Maya had all the qualities of a role model and leader all those years ago, and I have no doubt that she continues to be that and so much more as she prepares to graduate high school and attend the college of her choosing. I wish her all the best and am certain that she is destined for great things in all areas of her life!  - Mrs. Sardisco
