As a track star in junior high and a varsity football player in high school, Arius is no stranger to hard work. Dropping out of school his senior year because of obstacles such as homelessness and losing his football scholarship, Arius recently earned his high school diploma from the OCCC’s onsite charter school. His dedication and strong work ethic made him stand out to his teachers who awarded him student of the month for the month of February.
As a CorpsMember, Arius has earned his high school diploma and entered our worksite program, where he gains paid job-training at the La Habra Costco. He wants to go to Santa Ana College and dreams of playing football professionally. With his dedication and ambition we believe he will achieve these goals and hopefully remember us when he goes pro.
