Every month, Ripon High joins together to vote for ACE of the Month. The student body, and staff, nominates for someone they believe represents being an Academic Achiever, Community Contributor, and Effective Communicator. ACE of the Month looks for students and staff who possesses integrity, a strong work ethic, trustworthiness, and dependability.

Brendan Lan, a sophomore at Ripon High School, was nominated as September’s ACE of the Month!

“It feels really nice [that] I made such an impact… I’m just happy that at least some people benefited from my help,” Lan stated.
