Recognition for Beyer program

November 8, 2013 

Modesto’s big new high schools – Gregori and Enochs – have grabbed many of the headlines and accolades in recent years. So we think it’s worthwhile to shine a spotlight on a significant award just announced for Beyer High School’s Engineering and Robotics Pathway. The program is among 59 recipients of this year’s Golden Bell Award, presented by the California School Boards Association to recognize school programs that are innovative and sustainable, make a demonstrated difference for students and focus on meeting the needs of all students. Students in the program take classes in the STEM area, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The teachers who lead the program, Liliana Lazo and Heidi Pagani, will receive the award Dec. 7 at the CSBA conference in San Diego. For more information on the Engineering and Robotics Pathway, go to And congratulations to all involved.
