The GUHSD Online Learning Academy 2018-2019 Student of the Year went to Moises Soto. After dropping out of high school and moving from Minnesota in 2018, Soto enrolled in the Online Learning Academy where he has made a name for himself and an everlasting impact in the program as he became the first ever peer tutor and achieved other accomplishments. 

“Speaking to Moises Soto, one would never think he had a difficult last couple of years,” Online Learning Academy Administrator Christine Lord said. “However, he has worked hard and will finish 8.5 credits this school year and has already started summer school.”

In addition, he quickly won the hearts of the teachers and staff at the Online Learning Academy, Lord said. 

Some of Soto’s teachers described him as an outstanding student and person, acknowledging him for his strict dedication to his studies. They also appreciate his uplifting spirit, particularly when he is assisting his peers with assignments and providing them with words of encouragement, Lord said.

Soto aspires to be a lifelong learner. His interests include cognitive sciences, A.I. and machine learning, and neuroscience. For his future, he plans to earn a PhD in Neuroscience and Software Engineering. 

“Moises is a dedicated, conscientious young man. He exemplifies the meaning of perseverance and is a self-directed learner,” Lord said. “Moises, thank you for your dedication and hard work.  You are a delight to know and are truly deserving of this recognition.”
