Student with autism graduates as valedictorian
Congratulations to @GardenaH_S student Cory Suzuki who was diagnosed with autism at age four and earned the distinction of class valedictorian this year at Gardena High. Cory is the @ACSARegion16 winner of the 2019 Every Student Succeeding Award and is headed to @CSULB in the fall!
“Autism is not something that characterizes people. It’s something that people should embrace. Because people with autism can achieve a lot of things and not that many people do realize that. I’m glad I have it because it’s something that I can use as a strength in life.” -Cory Suzuki
