Pioneer High School senior Aneliza Ruiz has always enjoyed the arts, culture and theater, becoming a talented actress and developing a knack for memorization and an ability to think on her feet. Those skills have propelled her to excel in one of her other passions: speech and debate. On March 4, Aneliza competed against 25 master speakers in the ACSA Region 15 Student Oratory Contest. She was one of six winners selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship.
