Chaffey College students from Fontana are named valedictorians | News

The story takes place in the family of Lyndsay Wiedefeld.

Her father teaches the subject at Upland High School, family vacations revolve around historic sites, and Wiedefeld is graduating in history at Chaffey College.

“It has always been part of our discussions as a family since I was a child,” she said.

Wiedefeld, a resident of Fontana, has excelled so well in this subject at Chaffey that she has been named a glorious class of 2022. She is one of 18 students to have received the title – the most in the history of Chaffey College.

Chaffey has more than 2,600 students receiving about 4,600 degrees and certificates this year. They will be honored early, scheduled for May 19 at the Toyota Arena in Ontario.

Alyssa-Lyn Asamura and Katryna Kerth, both from Fontana, have also won the title of valedictorian.

Wiedefeld has lived in Fontana since he was in first grade. She attended school in Claremont, falling in love with history in the eighth grade.

“I just enjoyed learning about all the historical figures, the events and how that affects things today,” she said.

This helps her family enjoy visiting museums, state capitals, Spanish missions and more.

Wiedefeld graduated from Claremont High School, and on the recommendation of some friends, decided to enroll in Chaffey.

“It gave me an opportunity to look at other career opportunities and skills,” she said. “He also reaffirmed that graduating in history was a good decision.”

Despite doing well in all her classes, she said she was surprised to learn that she was a valet. She quickly shared the good news with her family.

“We were all extremely shocked,” she said. “But we were also excited and grateful.”

Wiedefeld will transfer to Azusa Pacific University in the fall to continue her academic journey. She hopes to become an archivist, general historian or follow in her father’s footsteps and teach.

Chaffey students earn the Valedictorian degree if they earn an associate degree and have a cumulative GPA of 4.0 in units applicable to their degree, among other criteria.

Other governors are Fernanda Cervantes Lopez from Ontario; Aileen Chavez Salazar of Bloomington; Dana Derweesh, Daphne Loukia Melita Kyritsi Loper, Ana Mendoza Torres, Qiuyin Tang and Zhenzhen Yang, all from Rancho Cucamonga; Kevin Fen of Riverside; Jazmin Garcia of San Bernardino; Yong Gyun Kim of Jurupa Valley; Fiona Li and HannahLeah Oeding, both from Chino; Danielle Martin of Rialto; Cassidy Mills of Banning; and Denise Yanez from Adelanto.
