The Santa Maria Valley Chamber in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Education Office recently selected PVHS Financial Services Pathway student, Yojevet Montecinos De Jesus, as the “Student of the Month” for October.

The program, “Santa Maria Next”, highlights the career readiness training offered in high school pathways and recognizes students who are excelling in various pathways.

Her Business Pathway teacher Sandra Sylvester nominated Yojevet, who is in 11th grade.

Currently, Yojevet is enrolled in Accounting & Finance, which is part of the Financial Services Pathway at PVHS, where she demonstrates an exceptional interest in Business classes and plans to take a concurrent Business college class next year. Additionally, she participates in Future Business Leaders of America and serves as the club parliamentarian.

Within the first two months of school, Yojevet has participated in two leadership Zooms with other California FBLA students and plans to attend section competitive events later this spring.

Ms. Sylvester said she appreciates Yojevet’s ambition and interest in taking Business classes and learning new job skills at the campus student store.

Yojevet also enjoys organizing “social” networking events with other high school student FBLA members. Yojevet likes to dance and travel different places in her spare time.

The Financial Services pathway at PVHS focuses on Accounting & Finance and Personnel Finance. Both courses are A – G approved. After completion of both courses, students become pathway completers and are then eligible to receive a special sash at graduation. FBLA offers business students activities to develop leadership skills, learn how to network, and can participate in a variety of state led competitive events. PVHS also provides students with the opportunity to earn community service hours working at the campus student store. Different areas of Business and Technology are part of future programs that will continue to grow jobs for generations to come.
