Serving as student body president at Hunter Huss High School, Jenny Lopez-Saldivar knows what it’s like to be a leader. She is one of the most active students at the school, and her efforts have encouraged others to get involved. This has resulted in increased student participation in extracurricular activities and sports.
Leading various projects and activities on campus, she worked this spring to organize a student-led demonstration against school violence.
Jenny is the recipient of the Gaston College Petty Scholars Award. She will attend Gaston College this fall and transfer later to a four-year university to study education. She hopes to become a teacher or school counselor. Whichever job she chooses, you can bet she will be a leader.
