Hill Academy at ICAN - (2017-2018) SENIOR HIGHLIGHT: The Saunders Montague Perseverance Award recipient from Hill Academy at ICAN is Jose Camargo Ramirez. Jose took a nearly three-year hiatus from high school after facing some personal struggles. Earlier this year, at the age of 20, Jose learned he was going to be a father. Jose had one goal in mind before the birth of his son -- and that was to graduate high school. One credit shy of achieving that goal, Jose asked to re-enroll in school and accomplished his dream just days shy of the birth of his son, Josiah. Hill Learning Academy Seniors Highlights
