Local News: Lakeview Graduates Prove that Hard Work Pays Off There have been many sad stories in the news recently, but I just came across one article that filled me with pride and joy and an overwhelming feeling of hope. Scrolling through my Facebook news feed over winter break, I noticed an article featuring two of my former students. Brothers Edgar and Cesar Garcia Lopez, children of immigrants, had graduated from Lakeview Middle School and Watsonville High and gone on to attend two of the most prestigious universities in the nation, Brown and Yale. "Watsonville's not just about violence and strawberries. It's about people going off and making it," shared Edgar. Let's get inspired and read together the amazing and true story of Edgar and Cesar.
