       Noemi Alvarado is a senior who brought the Mentorship Program for the 6th graders at MACES back to life. The program was initially started during quarantine to help MACES 6th graders become more connected with the school and with the upperclassmen. Alvarado was a part of the program when it first started and now she has brought it back to light with the help of her committee.

        Apart from leading the mentorship program, Alvarado is also the ASB secretary. “After becoming ASB Secretary, I knew right away that mentorship was what I wanted to oversee,” said Noemi Alvarado. She has taken the opportunities given to her as ASB secretary to help the school community as a whole. 

       Over the course of her high school years, Alvarado has taken a total of eight AP classes and is involved in many extracurricular activities including the National Honor Society and Interact. She would like to give a special thank you to Mrs. Navarro for leaving a positive impact on her throughout high school. “Mrs. Navarro is one of the most caring and loving teachers I’ve ever had. She cares not only for the well-being of her students but everyone around her. She has also guided me throughout my high school years, and I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for her unwavering support. I’m so honored that I got to work alongside her as a part of Leadership/ASB this year. Thank you for everything, Mrs. Navarro!” said Alvarado. 

       Alvarado has had four precious high school years and is looking forward to the next years of her life. “ I am looking forward to what the future holds. I am excited to move on with my life and work hard to make my dreams come true,” says Noemi. She expresses that senior year can be chaotic but also that one needs to cherish it and make memories. “ No matter the path you choose after high school, it is the best decision you can make. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise,”  Alvarado says to incoming seniors. 

       After leaving her paw print on the wolfpack familia with her work in the Mentorship Program, Noemi will continue her hard work and dedication at Santa Monica College.
