The Early Childhood Education Program recently renewed its Quality Counts California (QCC) Workforce Pathways Grant for the third year. The goal of the grant is to increase the number of qualified Early Learning and Care (ELC) professionals as well as increase the educational credentials, knowledge, and competencies of existing ELC professionals in Tulare County. “By advancing the level of professional development within the ELC workforce, we’ll see increases in the quality of instruction provided and learning among Tulare County’s youngest students,” said Samantha Terry, manager for the Tulare County Council on Child & Youth Development.

Profiles in Character
Maribel Chabolla

Maribel Chabolla, an eighth-grade graduate of Sundale Union School, was honored on graduation night for her excellence in character. 

Each year, Sundale Union School recognizes a graduate for the Principal’s Mustang of Merit award. This graduate exemplifies all Six Pillars of Character: responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, citizenship, fairness, and respect.

"Maribel has shined from the inside out these last nine years at Sundale School, and has been quite the joy to have watched grow up to the quality young lady she is today," said Principal Cindy Gist. Additional Sundale staff described Maribel as funny, always smiling, a leader in class, and humble but outspoken if she sees something wrong. Simply beautiful inside and out! 

There is no doubt that Maribel Chabolla is most deserving of the Principal’s Mustang of Merit award.
