16 May Star Graduate: Gabriela Machado of Durango High School
As an English Language Learner, Star Graduate Gabriela Machado of Durango High School has worked hard to excel in her academics. Gabby moved to the United States from Columbia just four years ago, excited to become a U.S. citizen. She joined Durango’s Air Force Junior ROTC NV 941 Core and excelled.
Gabby attributes her ability to learn English quickly to her time spent in ROTC, as well as making friends and doing a lot of community service. Gabby’s teachers and counselors value her sincerity, her genuine warmth and her caring personality.
Gabby has worked especially hard to earn a 3.25 GPA and to earn the Millennium Scholarship. She will be the first person in her family to graduate high school and attend college in the United States. Gabby plans to continue her education and become a dentist.
Congratulations to Star Graduate Gabriela Machado of Durango High School!
