The City Inglewood is certainly proud to be hosting the VMA Awards Aug. 24, but Inglewood Unified and Oak Street School is feeling as proud to be visited today by former Inglewood student, Becky G., less than a week before the superstar pop singer appears at the show this Sunday at the Forum.  MTV was on hand at Oak today to do a short video of her walking the halls, finding photos of herself and her brother in old year books and generally reminiscing  the great times she spent as a young student in Inglewood Unified.  The video of her visit is slated to be played as part of the show.

When Becky was nine, she and her family had to sell their home in the Moreno Valley and move into a converted garage at her grandparent’s home in Inglewood.  From these humble beginnings, Becky has done Inglewood proud by making it to the top of the Billboard charts, but also not forgetting her roots.  As her principal in 2007, current Oak Street Principal Richard Barter is most proud that his school had a meaningful, positive impact on Becky and that it was Oak, of all places, that Becky chose to visit.
