Naomi says receiving this honor “felt like a reward for all of the hard work I had put into my education. I have given my all at SCA for the years I have been here, and to be selected for this honor was truly a reminder for me that my dedication and hard work pays off.”
A graduate of Our Lady of Victory School in Mount Vernon, NY, Naomi plans to study in either a pre-med or health science track. Prior to the pandemic, she was a part of the Debate club. As a sophomore, she didn’t have the opportunity to be really involved in the SCA community due to COVID-19. Now as a junior, Naomi is on the cheer team, junior class president, looking forward to joining a club soon.
Naomi says the alums from SCA have been an inspiration. “As a freshman, you don’t know what to expect going into high school. Luckily, I had my cousin, Amanda Lewis ‘20, to guide me and help me settle into SCA. Over the years, watching the classes before me mature, graduate, and go to the schools of their dreams has been a huge factor in my drive to do better and grow as a student."
Hannah Y-T.. moved to the United States from El Salvador just a year ago. “When I heard about the honor, I was pretty surprised,” Hannah says. “I was super excited when I realized how important it was and how many doors it would open for my future.”
At SCA, Hannah is on the Varsity Volleyball team. Last year, she was part of the Student Council representing the sophomore class. In college, she plans on going to a liberal arts school to explore many subject areas before determining a major. As a junior, she wants to take advantage of every moment.
Hannah says, “At SCA, every person I come across has made a positive impact on my view of this school. From the beginning of the day to the end, the environment is friendly and everyone treats each other like family.”
