Valedictorian Reflects On High School And Value Of Community

June 2, 2017

Alyssa Borelli of Molino started last Saturday morning anxious for graduation, but a little sad that four years filled with lots of hard work and many laughs was coming to an end.

“I’m excited,” Alyssa quickly stated when asked the first thing that comes to mind when told she is Northview High School’s 2017 Valedictorian. “My parents deserve a huge thank you for being my biggest supporters throughout high school. My teachers and friends definitely deserve to be thanked as well.”

As the Executive Officer, or XO, of  Northview’s NJROTC, the vice president of the Future Business Leaders of America, and actively involved in Beta Club, the Student Government Association, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the school advisory council, and several other organizations, Alyssa worked hard not only in her studies, but to be an active student too.

Alyssa plans to attend the University of West Florida where she will major in mathematics. She wants to minor in education and teach high school math after graduating college.

When reflecting on the community, Alyssa realizes just how valuable it can be.

“This community is really important to me. I’ve been able to make a lot of close friends and even people I’ve just met are really nice and easy to talk to.”

Alyssa even touched on why she chose the University of West Florida when discussing the importance of  the community to her.

“When picking between UWF and UF,” she stated, “I chose UWF to stay close to my family and friends.”
