A little about the student: I have been a resident of Arizona for 15 years. I worked hard in high school so that I could become Salutatorian with a 4.74 weighted grade point average. I enjoy playing sports, especially tennis and basketball! I played on the Perry tennis team for 3 years. I love God, Jesus Christ, America, my family, my good friends, and my high school. Now I'm ready to take on the next challenge: college! After that and a church mission, I will hopefully go to med school and enter the medical field.
A little about the student: Alex is a very well-rounded student, graduating with a 4.72 grade point average, while still balancing many other components in his life.
