Meet Anette Durazo, 2017 Legacy & WingTapper Tour Scholarship Winner, nominated by Lucy Kin, Executive Director, Lapan College Club
"Anette has been a part of our Lapan College Club family since she was in elementary when she attended college readiness activities with her older brother Noe and her mother.
Along with being an excellent student, Anette's unflinching focus and attention to detail have been her greatest asset in mentoring numerous middle school students in the Lapan Cross Age Peer Mentoring Program. Naturally shy, Anette unassumingly connects with the timid 6th graders. We have seen her transform herself from a shy girl to a vibrant and ambitious young lady. She has strategically participated in clubs and college bound activities to overcome her shyness and to adequately prepare herself to garner scholarships that she will be seeking as she starts her Senior year."
