Sarah Benedict will be attending the University of Oregon, Kristin Riegel – CSU Long Beach, Rebecca Sanders – UCLA, Madison Treiber – St. John’s College and Matthew Schorr – Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Each of these graduates are very deserving and we look forward to hearing about their future successes.
