North High School- Nidia
Congratulations to Nidia at North High for being nominated for a STAR STUDENT award because of her willingness to help others, especially her own North High community. Nidia excels in academics, being a BioMed student she had to stay in the top of her class in order to get the scholarship she wanted, which she did. She will be attending KU in the Fall of 2020. Nidia became involved with our Baby Redskins group and created a pamphlet that offers different resources and agencies that provide help for teen moms or expecting moms. She was available to help students in by delivering their homework if needed during their maternity leave or come along with our advocates when a house visit was needed to drop off any baby items needed. Nidia has a radiant personality that brightens up any room. She really is driven by her desire to become a first generation student to graduate from a university.
Who are the people that helped you reach your finish line?
Nidia says the people who have helped her reach my goals are her AVID teacher, for giving her the resources needed to be successful in her education. Pando North has also helped her get a head start with her senior project going and provided socio-emotional help. But most importantly she credits her parents who have been there to support and encourage me to accomplish her goals.
