Hoover, Tenaya Middle School students and teachers visit UC Berkeley

Dozens of Merced students and teachers from Hoover and Tenaya middle schools enjoyed a trip and tour to the University of California-Berkeley campus on Wednesday. The students, who are in the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program,  walked nearly the entire campus from the Cal football stadium down to the student union and around the Campanile. They were able to ask important questions regarding academics, degree programs, athletics, and college acceptance requirements. AVID , is a program dedicated to closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and other postsecondary opportunities. #WeAreMCSD
