Also, the story of all the ABC7 Top Scholars will air each Thursday for six consecutive weeks from 3-4 p.m. Monday through Friday on "View From The Bay," beginning May 29. In July a special half hour of ABC7 Top Scholars will feature the stories of all six of the winners. The project is intended to promote academic excellence by honoring and rewarding top achievers, and Monte Vista is proud of Jibran Kahn for being a winner of this prestigious award.
