Awards and Heat

The past week was HOT in Camarillo but we survived thanks to some awesome awards ceremonies.

National Honor Society
Newbury Park High School Chapter

Mike Contreras
Teaching with Honor Award - Service

Our son Mike is on the right as one of his students, Hayden Exstrom, reads the reasons why Mike earned this award.

new NHS Members

Besides honoring four NPHS teachers, a counselor and an administrator for their Teaching with Honor in the areas of Character, Service, Leadership, Scholarship and Lifetime Achievement, the Honor Society was a also installing their new members on this warm evening.

New NHS Members on Stage

Yaser Khokhar

Yaser is one of the new NHS members and was a lineman on our NPHS JV football team last Fall. Three other members of that team were similarly inducted but were unable to attend the ceremonies. Missing were Liam Metcalf, Kyle Popok and Chris Reusch.

What a great honor for these four JV football playing Panthers! I am very proud of all four of them. 

Jason Klein and Michael Contreras

Jason is the Athletic Coordinator at NPHS and the Varsity Defensive Coordinator. On this night he also was selected as the NHS Teaching with Honor Award - Character winner.

Richly deserved.

Laurie and I were very proud of Mike's award to say the least.

Tierra Linda School
Hawk Pride Award

Continuing with our award theme, I accompanied family friend Cyndy Murphy to her son Dylan's elementary school, Tierra Linda, to see him receive his award for his very positive outlook on life and showing great leadership in his class.

It does not get any better than this at the age of two!
