As the Tutorial Center Coordinator at Mountain View High School, I have been fortunate to witness firsthand the benefits derived from the on-going support of the MVLA Foundation over the years. Thousands of Mountain View students have been positively influenced by the academic support provided by hundreds of selfless adult volunteer tutors from the surrounding community--made possible by the generous giving from countless members of the Mountain View-Los Altos communities to the MV-LA Educational Foundation.

On behalf of untold numbers of Mountain View & Los Altos High school graduates everywhere, I wish to thank the Foundation for making many lights shine--and many miracles happen!
