Students win video scholarship

Pleasant Valley High School students win a $1,000 scholarship for a video highlighting Chico Area Recreation and Park District

It’s a simple message that’s paid off for two high school students: Get out and be active.

Zachary Almand and Jakobie Rhodes, who attend Pleasant Valley High School, were presented with a $1,000 scholarship prize Wednesday (Jan. 17) for their work on a one-minute video that highlights Chico Area Recreation and Park District’s programs and impact on the community. The students placed second in the California Special Districts Association contest.

“They have both grown a lot in their filmmaking skills over the last three years and I am proud to see their accomplishments rewarded,” their teacher, Michael Peck, told the CN&R.
