After students competed in the Sectional Public Speaking competition, 11 qualified to head to regional finals.

Their eye is on the State Finals Competition in Sacramento.

PVHS students who qualified are Elizabeth Beebe, Arianna Botello, Savanah Davis, Andrea Guzman, Luis Hernandez, Urial Mariscal, Jasmin Olivera, Crystal Ortiz, Jenna Ramirez and Isabella Zaragoza.
