Golden Valley High students form a support group for struggling students

Golden Valley High School students started their own peer counseling group called THRIVE that is quickly becoming a model for schools across the Kern High School District looking to reach struggling students.

The project is the brainchild of Golden Valley High School senior Jayden Reyes Sarmiento. She and fellow senior Gerardo Bernal were invited to be student representatives on the school's support team. The idea came up during a discussion in October.
