All A Awards at GPHS on Sunday, May 19th, were a resounding success with a capacity crowd in the newly renovated H. H.Chambers Auditorium. Almost 200 students in the GPISD were recognized, including 14 seniors who achieved all A’s throughout their tenure.  Congrats to all students!

At a recent business meeting, Soroptimist member Tammy Chan, talked to the club about Sex Trafficking Victims in our community.  As we know, this is one of the major issues that Soroptimist International of the America’s has identified for clubs to help eradicate in our communities and educate the women involved.

The club will be forming an investigatory committee with others in the community to see if there is a way we can all work together and help the women who have been forced into this.
