PHOENIX -- With the number of vaccine doses being administered dropping, state health officials are finally agreeing to let doctors start immunizing their patients against COVID-19.

As the first full academic year within the pandemic comes to an end for teachers and students we speak with Gina Thompson, Superintendent of Yuma Union High School District. We’ll talk about lessons of resilience and citizenship, upcoming graduation ceremonies, and what looks to be an ambitious summer school schedule and hiring season.
