Alejandro - 9th Grade
Watsonville High School
Alejandro has been selected as our high school Student of the Month for February! Virtual learning has been a difficult transition for Alejandro, just like it has been for many of our students, but the start of the new year has lit a fire in Alejandro to give it his all and do whatever it takes to have a successful semester. Alejandro never turns down the opportunity to work with our amazing tutors, participate in our Saturday events, and even shoot hoops with Coach Bobo! “I met new people that were positive influences on my life, [people] who help you with your needs--not just homework,” says Alejandro about his time at Youth N.O.W. A freshman at Watsonville High, Alejandro can be found taking care of his 6 dogs and 16 birds when not in school. When he grows up, he hopes to study at Cal Poly SLO to fulfill his dream of becoming an architect. His dedication and commitment to his studies has earned him this award and we have no doubt that these same qualities will allow him to reach his dream. Congratulations Alejandro!
