“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races -
one after the other.” 

– Walter Elliot 
That’s the idea behind the Perseverance Award to be presented 
to several Pasadena Unified students this month. Recipients 
must demonstrate exceptional persistence working 

toward their highest potential in light of their age and/or life circumstances. Special education 
teachers collaborated with District leaders to develop award criteria and winners must 

• Perseverance: By overcoming obstacles as they work to the best of their ability and 
they demonstrate sustained effort. 
• Positive Social-Emotional/Behavior Skills: By maintaining positive school behaviors 
and respectfully participating with peers and staff. 
• Proactive: By asking for help, demonstrating curiosity, and a drive to learn, as well 
as seeking information about topics of interest 
• Progress: making progress toward their goals (academic skills and behavior) 
Students will receive the awards during on-campus presentations. They will also receive special 
recognition at the April 28, 2022 School Board meeting and their accomplishments will 
be showcased in a slideshow. The number of awards per school will be based on the number 
of students with disabilities (SWD) served at each school site. 


Make college more affordable by saving on intangible costs 

When it comes to comparing the costs of various colleges, remember that on the broadest 
level, costs can be tangible or intangible. To save money, follow these tips from KHEAA. 

Tangible costs include tuition, fees, room and board. 

Intangible costs include everything else: textbooks and supplies; computers; and 
personal items, such as shampoo, clothes, entertainment, laundry and other expenses. 

You can save money, sometimes a lot of money, by controlling the costs of your 
lifestyle. That doesn’t mean skimping on shampoo, soap, food and doing your 
laundry. But you can cut costs by finding sales or using coupons. 
Always be looking out for buy one, get one free deals. 

You can also save quite a bit of money by cutting back on treats such as entertainment 
and dining out. Doing those things less often will make them even more special when 
you do treat yourself. 

Remember: The less you spend on the intangibles, the less you’ll have to take outin student loans. That means that after you graduate you can afford more of the 
things you enjoy. 

KHEAA is a public, non-profit agency established in 1966 to improve students’ access to 
college. It provides information about financial aid and financial literacy at no cost to students 
and parents. KHEAA also helps colleges manage their student loan default rates and 
verify information submitted on the FAFSA. For more information about those services, visit 

In addition, KHEAA disburses private Advantage Education Loans on behalf of its sister 
agency, KHESLC. For more information, visit
