is a senior at John Muir High school in the Business Academy. He has been on honor roll throughout high school. After high school he plans to attend college and study business. Saadiq said at first he joined the Business Academy because he thought it would be the easiest. However, after he developed his first MOCK business plan for a business he wanted to create, he found it enjoyable. It was an eye opening assignment for him and he realized he could do something he loved along with being able to be his own boss.
PACEF is very pleased to acknowledge that we received a $1500 grant from the Loretta Glickman Endowment and Pasadena Community Foundation discretionary grant program to partially fund our 2023 scholarship awards.
