Congratulations to Cibola Junior Olivia Valenzuela for being accepted into the KEYS program this summer.  KEYS stands for Keep Engaging Youth in Science (KEYS) Research Internship.

The KEYS program brings Arizona high school students to the University of Arizona for research internships in various STEM fields. The internships are for 7 weeks during the summer. For more information about KEYS please visit our website:

"Olivia was the only student chosen in Yuma county for this program and she was one of the 30 chosen out of 190 applications, " says Kim Adkins, Cibola Science teacher.  "Olivia challenges herself and enjoys researching.  The KEYS program is an excellent fit for her and gives her an opportunity to follow that passion.  We are excited about this opportunity for her over the summer and can't wait to see how it will impact her next year as a senior at Cibola."
