Student Spotlight: Rosario
The Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) student representative on the San Diego County Board of Education for October was Rosario, a senior at Monarch School.
School counselor Jessica Codallos describes Rosario as a “role model, kind, and who is hard working.” Teacher Jeffra Becknell says she is “organized, meticulous, likes to use a lot of color in her art, and also loves the environment.”
Rosario plans to go to college and pursue a career in criminal justice. She loves the environment and learning about plants, animals, and everything that happens on the planet.
She’s grateful to teacher Delia Contreras, who Rosario says “helps me with college and gives me advice.” She also credits her mother for giving her inspiration.
Her advice to other students is to be yourself and not do what others want you to.
“We all look forward to seeing Rosario grow in her senior year and taking the next steps in supporting and learning with her community,” said Monarch School Principal Dyane Plumly.
Each month, the San Diego County Board of Education recognizes a student from JCCS at its regular meeting.
"In addition to giving the board a chance to honor a student, participation in the meeting also gives students valuable experience in leadership," said Dr. Paul Gothold, San Diego County superintendent of schools.
