Eastwood High Senior Awarded YISD’s President’s Award for February

The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored Eastwood High School senior Ryan Solis, who has devoted nearly 500 hours of his free time over the past four years to community and public service, with the February President’s Award.

Aside from participating in more than 20 extracurricular clubs, Ryan is an active part of the Greater El Paso Chamber of Commerce, where he served as an associate director and the youngest member of the Board of Governors for two terms. He is also a district office intern with State Senator Cesar Blanco in the Office of Texas House Minority Whip.

In addition, Ryan co-founded a community project called Safety in Cognizance, which seeks to combat human trafficking on the U.S.-Mexico border by working with international organizations. Through this project, Ryan has given presentations on safety and prevention that have impacted more than 1,200 students.

Ryan’s exceptional work has been honored nationwide with a Disney Dreamer Award – and last week, he accepted a community service award in Washington D.C. from the National Hispanic Heritage Foundation. Ryan’s efforts to improve the lives of all residents in the El Paso region are admirable, and YISD is proud to honor his passion and dedication to public service.

The President’s Award is given by the President of the Board of Trustees to a YISD student who has demonstrated exceptional and/or innovative, out-of-the-ordinary service to others, particularly those within the YISD community. This award will be presented to the selected recipient a maximum of once per month during the regularly scheduled meeting of the YISD Board of Trustees.

Eligible YISD students must be nominated for the award by a school principal, assistant principal, or Trustee; and must be in good academic and disciplinary standing.
