Michelle Rangel

Michelle Rangel Here is a brief synopsis from Michelle’s
biography. “Hispanic women aren’t meant to go to College” barks my grandfather every time he sees me studying. He grew up in a family where he was taught that Hispanic women are meant to stay home and raise a family. His sermons about how my grandmother and all the women in my family didn’t go to school were convincing until one day when he said “it’s the cycle of the Hispanic women”. That’s when my way of thinking changed completely. And change she did. Michelle is ranked 1st in her class of 301 with a grade point average of 101.5. She has served as National Honor Society Vice President, National Technical Honor Society president, math club treasure, student counsel vice president, Spanish club vice president, yearbook editor and class officer historian. Michelle plans to attend Trinity University in the fall where she will major in Business Law. Congratulations Michelle!
