Rembrandt Secondary Student signs Letter of Intent!!!

History in the Making!
Vanguard Academy’s 1st ever student signs College Letter of Intent!

Last Friday, May 19, 2023, Surrounded by family, friends, and administrators, Osvaldo Martinez, a senior at Vanguard Rembrandt Secondary, signed a letter of intent to represent Allan College in track and cross country. Osvaldo's signing an athletic letter of intent is not only a goal reached by one of Rembrandt's top athletes but also a milestone for Vanguard Academy being the first athlete to receive an athletic scholarship to continue pursuing his educational goals as part of a college's athletic program. The signing took place during the middle school athletic celebration at Vanguard Academy Van Gogh's soccer field. As a senior at Rembrandt Secondary, Osvaldo participated in wrestling, qualified for the state cross-country season, and was part of Rembrandt's district championship team in soccer. He was also a key athlete for Rembrandt's track and field district championship team where he qualified for the regional meet as one of the area's best 800m and 1600m runners. Osvaldo addressed the middle school athletes and friends by thanking God. Osvaldo thanked also his brother for his support and expressed his gratitude to Vanguard's superintendent, Dr. Narciso Garcia, and fellow administrators. Osvaldo thanked also his coach, Brian Yanez, Athletic Coordinator Noe Alvarado, as well Rembrandt's principal Mrs. Dina Cano for their support. Vanguard Academy students and staff pray for Osvaldo's safety and success at Kansas Allen College.
