Last week, our Athletic Trainer, Chase Paulson, was recognized by the California Interscholastic Federation–Southern Section (CIF-SS) as a “Champion of Character.” This is one of the highest awards that can be given by CIF. A testament to Mr. Paulson’s excellence as a person and positive influence in our community. Congratulations Mr. Paulson for being a champion of character for our students!

 

Special thanks to Brahma Foundation President Yara Sands for organizing and coordinating Casino Night on Friday, September 29! Casino night was organized by the Brahma Foundation to generate funds for a new LED Video Display Board for our stadium. It was a fun night of games, food and community where DBHS staff, parents, alumni, WVUSD Board Members, District Administration, and members of our Diamond Bar City Council came together for our students!
