Gilbert, AZ- Williams Field High School has recently began to offer the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program this year. AVID provides students with the support and knowledge to be better prepared for college. Every month, WFHS will be selecting one AVID student to be featured as the “AVID Honors Student of the Month”.

Kaiulani Chastain – a freshman at Williams Field – has been selected as the AVID Honors Student for the month of August! Chastain demonstrates hard work and dedication in the classroom and deserves to be recognized for her accomplishments.

“Having the support of my teachers who really care, and motivate me to succeed is very comforting,” aaid Chastain. “I used to take all regular classes, to be accepted into the AVID program I now have to take two honors classes.” Chastain is in Honors English and Biology.  

Chastain explained that she has never experienced this new, challenging, level of thinking that is required in the AVID program. From time-to-time guest speakers come into the classroom and some of the key information Chastain has taken away from these guest speakers is that, “College is going to be hard, never give up, and keep going in the right direction.” To achieve her goal of attending UCLA and majoring in dance, Chastain plans on finishing freshman year with good grades and to take advantage of as many tutoring opportunities as she can. Chastain wants to stay on top of her credits, homework, and graduate high school with a 3.0 GPA.

In result of deciding to join the AVID program, Chastain will be well prepared for the upcoming years of high school, and most importantly college. Her advice to other students is, “Join the AVID program, I’ve only been in it for four weeks and it’s already helped me so much!”
