  • Hello Sierra Pacific students and parents, 

    First off, please accept our apologies for the delay in publishing the Local Scholarship Program Video. There were uncontrollable circumstances that created the delay.  This production involves many working parts and we are pleased that the delay was just a few days.  Second, we want to thank Mr. Hopper and the Hanford West Video production team for all the assistance they have given us and all the hard work they have done to make the video a reality.  

    Note: We recorded the video on May 12th, and since then, we have received a few more awards.  We have created a slide show to honor those students and the scholarship donors that did not make the video.  We do our best to include all winners, but we can only include those awards that have provided their winners by the recording date.

    Please help us celebrate with our seniors that have taken the time to apply for scholarships and have invested that time in their future. They deserve a round of applause along with the parents, counselors, teachers and others that encourage these amazing young people to pursue their dreams!  

    Below you will find a link to the HJUHSD Local Scholarship Program awards Video.  The video includes all winners from all three high schools: Hanford High, Sierra Pacific, and Hanford West.  The link below has the slide show which includes the same announcements but includes those awards that did not make the production deadline.  The first nine or so slides in the slide show are those awards that did not make the video.  Hope you enjoy the video!

    Congratulations to all our winners!

  • Mrs. O'Brien

    Mrs. O'Brien has worked in the educational field for over 25 years. She has been employed with HJUHSD since 1999. Mrs. O'Brien has held several positions during this time working at HHS, HW, HAS, and finally, SPHS. She claims that her favorite position has been working in the Career Center at SPHS! She says, "I have found the students and staff here to be exceptional and I feel very privileged to be able to work with them." She goes on to say that helping students navigate through high school, especially their senior year, is very rewarding. Celebrating their accomplishments as they are accepted into their desired college or university, helping them complete their financial aid and scholarship applications and seeing them be awarded free money, are all major highlights! It is her firm belief that every student can be successful with support and guidance, "they just have to have the 'want to!'" As the Career Education Coordinator, she understands the challenges of transitioning from high school to beyond. She is committed to providing Sierra Pacific students with the tools that they need to help them succeed!
