"Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber (D-San Diego) joined Barona Tribal Chairman Raymond Welch and Tribal Councilmember Delia Castillo to present the Barona Education Grant of $5,000 to the Lemon Grove Academy Middle School. Accepting the award were Lemon Grove Academy Middle School Principal Tamara Muhammad, Assistant Principals Vanessa Ruiz and Torazzi Hayslett, Lemon Grove School District Superintendent Erica Balakian, Lemon Grove School Board President Cheryl Robertson, and Lemon Grove School Board Clerk Yajaira Preciado."

“One of my priorities is closing the academic achievement gap, a long-standing detriment to Black and Brown youth,” said Assemblymember Weber. “I extend my gratitude to the Barona Band of Mission Indians for this award. It is fitting that this grant was given today on Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Despite generations of attempts of assimilation, discrimination and genocide, our Indigenous brothers and sisters continue to contribute so much to American society. Their constant support of the 79th Assembly District is a perfect example.”

Each year, the Barona Education Grant provides an opportunity for schools in underserved communities to fund educational projects that promote academic achievement. The Lemon Grove Academy Middle School, which is located in the 79th Assembly District, was nominated by Assemblymember Weber to receive the funds for their after school enrichment programs. These programs are designed to foster academic excellence, mentorship, and physical health.

“Congratulations to the Lemon Grove Academy Middle School located in my Assembly District on this grant award,” continued Assemblymember Weber. “May you continue to provide quality academic enrichment programs for the youth of Lemon Grove.”
