Superintendent Gabriela Mafi Presents GGUSD's Exciting Mentoring Program

Superintendent Gabriela Mafi presented to sixth graders at Lawrence Elementary School recently, inviting them to join the district's College and Career Mentoring Program. Students enjoyed learning about the superintendent's life experiences, as well as lessons in grit, scholarly habits, and motivation. Dr. Mafi launched the mentoring program in 2014-15 at three elementary schools and today, it is offered at 23 elementary schools. GGUSD grads and college students return to help students with their academic work, serve as positive role models, and provide students with tips about how to begin thinking about and preparing for college.
