Pt. Loma Students’ Special Presentation in Washington D.C.

Caitlin Snell and Dr. Jill BidenA Washington, D.C. conference recently heard Pt. Loma High students Caitlin Snell and Cody Harvey talk about the success of the school’s Student 2 Student (S2S) program, which helps ease the transition of new students to the campus.

The pair attended the Military Child Education Coalition conference along with advisor Brook Valot, who served as chaperone. S2S started at Pt. Loma in February, 2010, pairing new students with a veteran classmate, who helps them find their way around campus and joins them for lunch and school events.

Of the more than 200 schools across the country with an S2S program, Pt. Loma High was one of only four that presented at the conference. While there, Caitlin met with Dr. Jill Biden (in photo), wife of Vice-President Joe Biden.
