Emily Nino Martinez: Liberty High School Rotary Student of the Month

May 7, 2024 - Congratulations Emily Nino Martinez, from Liberty High School, who is Hillsboro Rotary Student of the Month. Emily received her award certificate accompanied by her proud mom, Mayra Martinez, and Liberty AVID teacher Deka Smith-Menard. She has been part of AVID since middle school, and has learned so much that this year she has served as a peer tutor for first-year AVID students, and has had the opportunity to share her knowledge, offering advice and encouragement. After three years of ceramics classes at Liberty, she's been working on her senior project: four art pieces that represent Hispanic culture and what that means to her. Emily plans to be a first generation college student, major in nursing and become a registered nurse. Congratulations Emily, and all the best to you in your future endeavors!
