The Milpitas Management Association hosted its annual Every Student Succeeding Breakfast on May 11, honoring students who exceed expectations and the adults who support
them along the way.
Each school designated at least one student that embodies the spirit of the event and, that morning, they were introduced and their stories were shared out by Principals as they were called forward to receive their award.
“Today, we are proud to highlight these young men and women who have overcome great obstacles to succeed. Their stories are remarkable and their futures are bright,” MMA President Damon James said.

“You are all examples of something called the audacity of hope, because hope is what keeps us going,” Superintendent Cheryl Jordan said in closing the ceremony. “And I think what each person who spoke about you sees in you is that light that comes from hope. So always continue to go out through life being the person you are meant to be and sharing that hope with others so they that have the courage to do the same.”
