Congrats Melissa Lopez: Warren Christopher Scholarship

Congratulations to Melissa Lopez who was awarded the Warren Christopher Scholarship.

From the award pamphlet:
Melissa Lopez is unstoppable. "Being told that I can't do something is a phrase I am used to hearing, but not one I will ever accept," she says. That can-do attitude has already led to tremendous success in academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Despite a demanding course load and year-round athletic commitments, Melissa is the of at top her class. Last year, she fulfilled a lifelong dream by training for an completing the LA Marathon. Outside of school, Melissa is active in the community, volunteering local at a garden and participating in the Southern California Hand Weavers Guild. After high school, she plans to attend college and study environmental science.
