STOCKTON – A Stockton high school that focuses on health care careers recently received a $10,000 to pay for books for the school’s library and classroom, and for other material.
Health Career Academy High School Principal Traci Miller said the Health Plan of San Joaquin awarded the school the grant for the next school year.
“Pretty incredible,” Miller said in an email about the grant.
Miller also mentioned that the school is adding to its scholarships coffers.
“We received $6,000 total this year for scholarships to be given out when we have our first graduating class in three years,” Miller said in the same email. “I am making it a personal goal to have $12,000 more raised for next year to add to the pot.”
The Stockton Unified School District charter high school is in University Park and prepares students for further education or careers in health care. Health care has been one of the most stable sectors, event during the recession. Miller wrote in the Central Valley Business Journal of the importance of relationships between schools and business.
