Alumni Achievement Award: Community Service
Diana’s desire to live a life of service is reflected through her actions, involvement in countless service projects, and her goal to attend Johns Hopkins University to major in biomedical engineering to prepare for a career in prosthetics. During her senior year, Diana has been working in computer science class on an innovative prosthetic arm that she hopes will be shipped to a child in need.
Since enrolling, Diana has flourished in her academic achievements, leadership qualities, and efforts to serve the school community. She has been active in a variety of programs including serving as editor in chief of the school digital newspaper and as president of the Young Women’s Alliance. She concurrently served as president of the National Honor Society and as vice president of the Technical National Honor Society, and is the lead tutor at the MHS Writing Center.
In the summer of 2018, Diana participated in an MHS international program when she traveled with a cohort of students and staff to Germany and Switzerland. She also interned at The Hershey Company West Plant, shadowing line engineers. She has been honored in the past as MHS Rotary Student of the Month and has consistently earned honor roll status in the areas of achievement and effort and conduct while taking a challenging course load that included numerous Honors, AP, and College in the Classroom courses.
