Kate Lam was named Second Team All-California while Miles Casella was named Third Team All-California.
Casella, who is studying business with an emphasis in finance, called it a great honor being named to the All-California Academic Team. “I still can’t believe that I’m on the team,” he said. “This accolade just pushes me to work harder in my studies.”
Casella attended the recognition ceremony with Cañada College President Larry Buckley.
Casella attended high school in Templeton, California in San Luis Obispo County. He was recruited to Cañada to play soccer in the fall of 2010 but has since focused his efforts on academics. He said Cañada offers students a lot of resources to succeed academically.
“The Learning Center gives students all the resources and tools necessary to succeed academically,” he said. “Cañada has certainly helped me. The professors are very knowledgeable and helpful, the staff and tutors are always willing to help, and you’re in a learning environment that encourages you to want to succeed in school.”
