A graduate of the WHCL class of 2016, Jonathan Maravilla saw his time at West Hills College Lemoore as an opportunity to think. He came to WHCL with not much of an idea of what he wanted to study.
He graduated with a solid understanding of what he wanted his future to be like and a path to get there. He earned his associate’s degree in business administration in the spring of 2016 and stared at Fresno State in the fall of 2017 to earn his bachelor’s degree in engineering. He credits his success to WHCL and to the President’s Scholars program.
“It was a good way to save money and have time to think about going into a certain major,” he said. “It took some of the stress off and it also gave me a boost, knowing that I had to maintain a high GPA. It kept me focused.”
He applied for the President’s Scholars Program after a WHCL counselor told him about the program and encouraged him to apply.
He is a graduate of Sierra Pacific High School in Hanford, a member of the class of 2014.
