Riverside High School’s National Honor Society Awarded YISD’s President’s Award

The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored a group of service-oriented students who took time out of their summer break to provide much-needed assistance at Pebble Hills Elementary School.

Pebble Hills Principal Stacy Vasquez put out a call this summer to high schools, asking for volunteers to help paint classrooms at her campus.

The call was heeded by 19 members of Riverside High School’s National Honor Society (NHS), who showed up in force to help school officials paint more than 60 classrooms in only three days.

Ms. Vasquez said,”Had it not been for the dedicated volunteer work provided by these exceptional Riverside Rangers,  her classrooms would not have been ready for the new furniture provided for students this year. These students are a shining example of the hard work, dedication, and service excellence that we are emphasizing throughout our district, and we applaud them on a job well done!”

Receiving the President’s Award at the board meeting was NHS President Victoria Rodriguez, who accepted the award on behalf of the Riverside High School National Honor Society.

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.

Riverside High Alumni, Newly Minted College Coach Latorre Returns

While Saturday was filled with graduations in the Sun City, at Riverside High School one proud Alumnus returned to speak with the next generation.

Former Riverside Ranger Corinna Latorre is making headlines in Nebraska, as she has just been chosen to be the next Head Coach for the Women’s Basketball Program at York College.

Before her promotion, she was part of the coaching staff; Corinna also previously played for York College and in her two years as a Panther, Latorre scored over 1,000 points and was selected to the MCAC All-Conference teams for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 season.

Graduating this year with her Master’s degree as well, 2018 has proven to me a momentous year.

In the world of athletics, at only 25-years-old, Latorre becomes one of the youngest to hold the distinct honor of being named ‘Head Coach’ for a college program.

Latorre – whose maiden name is Minjarez –  graduated from Riverside in 2011 and played both volleyball and basketball for the Rangers. ]
