The College Board has issued Heritage High School a $3,000 monetary award to support the continuation of the program, and Mr. Emmert was honored at the College Board’s Western Forum in San Francisco on February 25-26. He’s also been invited to speak on the importance of Arts and CTE programming at the Board’s Annual Conference in San Francisco this upcoming July.
