WALLA WALLA — The third annual Senior AVID Recognition will be held 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Walla Walla High School Commons.
Advancement Via Individual Determination is a college readiness program that teaches good study habits, note taking and critical thinking to get underserved students toward higher education. AVID students are typically the first in their families to attend college.
The 23 AVID seniors have all applied to at least one four-year university or college; 21 were accepted to at least one four-year school; and 17 will be attending universities or colleges in the fall. Another seven are heading to Walla Walla Community College, and one student will enter the Air Force.
The AVID Recognition event recognizes the students as they head toward higher education and celebrates their accomplishments in high school.
