SD High Business students cheer on '3 Day' walkers

Cavers cheer For the fourth year in a row, more than 110 students from the Academy of Finance at the School of Business, San Diego High Educational Complex, dressed in costumes, wore pink to show support, and cheered on the walkers in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.

This year was extra special for the students because one of their own Academy of Finance alumni from the class of 2011 participated as a walker. He had cheered on walkers back in 2010 with the Academy of Finance students.

The Academy of Finance students participate in community service activities throughout the school year as a whole group, grades 10-12, to learn the importance of giving back to the community. This event is always one of the students’ favorites because they can directly see the effect they have on the walkers as they cheer them on.

The Academy of Finance is a California Partnership Academy funded by a grant from the California Department of Education. California Partnership Academies are three-year program in grades 10-12 structured as a school-within-a-school. Academies incorporate integrated academic and career technical education, business partnerships, mentoring, and internships.
