Hard work. Dedication. Determination. These are just a few words that describe Valley Christian Junior High’s sixth grader, Michael Andriyuk. For many years, Michael has been perfecting his craft of competitive springboard and platform diving. Five or six days each week, he makes the trek to Stanford University for hours of afterschool diving practice. Michael’s hard work and perseverance have paid off! As a result of the cumulative points earned this year through the various competitions in which he participated, Michael was recognized as the winner of the 2017 Nor-Cal Diver of the Year in his age group. Congratulations, Michael, we are so very proud of you!
