Riverside Senior Honored With YISD President’s Award

The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored Riverside High School senior Mariana Ramirez with the November President’s Award.

Mariana has demonstrated great leadership and service among her peers and the El Paso community. YISD officials add, “Mariana is the type of student who puts her values into practice for the betterment of others.”

As a JROTC cadet, Mariana has earned more than 300 community service hours by volunteering for charitable organizations that include the Ronald McDonald House; United Blood Services; and the Armed Forces YMCA.

In October, however, Mariana took it upon herself to organize the first-ever Community Breast Cancer Awareness Walk at Shawver Park, which successfully drew about 100 participants to support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken, and encourage survivors to never give up hope.

Aside from her outstanding community service, Mariana has been a stellar JROTC cadet and student; She is not only Ysleta ISD’s highest-ranking JROTC Senior Cadet, but she is ranked in the top 10% of her graduating class, and she routinely offers to tutor students who are struggling academically.

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.
