Dominguez High School Super Six
Together since elementary school, six students at Dominguez High School made the promise to always get the best grades and go to college. And they did it. “Get it together” became a mantra for Kimberly Fernandez, Daina Espinosa, Nancy Rivas, Jannet Gomez, Yenifer Espitia and Elizabeth Perez Gayosso; any time one of them was lagging in one of their classes, all of the others pushed her to do better. All of them were accepted at top colleges in California and they became a symbol of perseverance at Compton Unified School District. The story captivated the attention of local and national media.
