A wonderful story! Nice to read about kids who excel within our community especially in this day where usually we hear only negative. Brothers Alexander and Anthony should be proud of their accomplishments, it takes hard work and dedication to do what you have done. A job well done boys! Kudos to the mother Monica Pineda on raising such outstanding citizens! Exceptional parenting!

Wonderful story. Awesome family. This is refreshing. So tired of hearing about bad kids with drug addictions and sticky fingers. (Aka Malibu Barstow).
