Each student, wearing their applicable college apparel, will be recognized in front of their peers and family members.  


Mountain View High School Principal, Todd Garelick, states, “Mountain View is excited to be a part of this national movement to ensure that students are recognized for their academics and their commitment to pursue higher education. Schools have long celebrated student athletes and we feel that it is just as important to recognize those students who have worked very hard during their 13 years in school and accomplished so much in order to proceed forward to higher education. Mountain View counselors work tirelessly to maximize opportunities for our student’s success by matching interests, academic goals and identifying schools that fit student interests and life goals.”
