Contra Costa County Student Humanitarian of the Year
Yassna Ahmadi, Pinole Valley High School 2019 Student Humanitarian of the Year
During our January 2019 event, Pinole Valley High School senior Yassna Ahmadi was named Student Humanitarian of the Year, and thanked her family and friends for their support.
She is proud of her Muslim heritage, while including the African American Student Union among her many activities. She also works as a baby sitter and a volunteer assistant to a UC Berkeley professor.
"She is one of the most giving students I have had the pleasure of working with in my 31 years in West Contra", says Principal Kibby Kleiman. She serves as an advocate and spokesperson for causes that support the disadvantaged and disempowered. Her dedication to others embodies the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
