    Jose Camargo Ramirez
    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

    This school year, Hill Learning Academy helped 92 students earn their high school diplomas. When compared to the past 5 years where the school had an average of 32 graduates per year, this was a great accomplishment by our students. My hat is off to the staff who helped make their dreams come true.
