Mother: Delia Tenorio
Most memorable high school moment: For the past three years I have gone to Branson, Mo., with my guitar ensemble to preform at shows there. Preforming shows with an audience was really fun. I got to spend time with my friends and hang out together at the hotel or the other places we visited.
Most influential teacher: Julia Hegler in science classes. Since meeting her, she’s always been a really great teacher and help. She’s helped me out a lot with applying for college, and she really encouraged me to do a lot of things. If I ever needed help with anything, I would go to her, and I would get the help I needed. I really appreciate her for being a great teacher and for all she has done to help and encourage me.

What does receiving the Mahone Fund scholarship mean to you? Receiving the Mahone Fund scholarship means a lot to me because it’s giving me financial support to be able to achieve my goals. I have worked hard throughout my school years to get to the future I want, but an obstacle for me is the financial cost of my education. So, receiving this scholarship is extremely helpful and important to me.
