by | May 2, 2024 | News

In a special message to the community of the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District, Superintendent Dr. Alex Cherniss announced a new partnership with the Richard Nixon Foundation. The first component of this partnership is a summer internship program available for high school students. Up to five rising juniors or seniors will be selected this May for the internships. To apply, students must submit a letter describing their interest in civics education and the Nixon Library.

In his announcement Dr. Cherniss shared, “Today the Richard Nixon Library & Museum, built in 1990, serves as a community treasure with thousands of people coming to visit our city and learn about United States history. It also serves as a vivid message to all of our PYLUSD students that being the president of the United States of America is within their reach.” His goal is to create a stronger relationship between the Nixon Foundation and the school district and continue to expand this partnership to benefit local students.
