TISH AGOS CREDIT RECOVERY SCHOLARSHIP
We believe in supporting and encouraging a successful academic experience for all students from start to finish. Working with GHS and understanding the importance of improving graduation rates, we developed the Credit Recovery Program.
This program started with 7 scholarships to individual students and has now developed into a program that benefits many students across all grades that are in need of credit recovery courses in order to graduate.
This program is in memory of Tish Agos, former Assistant Principal at Golden High School (GHS). Tish Agos passed away April 6, 2018 from cancer.
As an Assistant Principal at GHS, Tish came to this position well-versed in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. She was a high school English teacher for 17 years in three states, serving in school districts that embraced best practices and school reform issues (Jeffco; Montgomery County, MD; and Desert Sands, CA) in a variety of ways. Tish often said she felt privileged to support students and staff at GHS and looked forward to working with her fellow Demons each and every day!
Tish was key in launching this program in 2016 and keeping it moving for it's first 2 years, until a few months before her death. Her dedication to her students was legendary. She was selfless, unassuming and genuine. We are all better for having known her.
