  • Whittier High Senior Earns $10,000 Scholarship for Overcoming Adversity, Achieving Academic Success

    Some of Whittier High School senior Florencia “Flo” Valenzuela’s earliest memories include watching addiction consume her drug-dependent parents and having child protective services place her and her younger brother in foster care at 5 years old. Valenzuela at 13 years old found stability with her older sister and has since found empowerment and resiliency, flourishing at home and at school. Holding a 3.8 GPA, Valenzuela is an active member of the Associated Student Body, an Academic Mentor to her peers, athlete and community volunteer. Despite the overwhelming obstacles, Valenzuela has excelled as an academic scholar, earning a $10,000 scholarship from the Children’s Defense Fund-California.
