The University of Arizona held a breakfast event today to recognize 75 Flowing Wells High School students it has admitted. The celebration is connected to a Flowing Wells initiative that encourages all students to pursue post-high school education and training.

Participating students listened to a speech from Kasey Urquidez, UA dean of admissions, and participated in a schoolwide pep assembly. They also had pictures taken at a photo booth and were given UA memorabilia.
