Leilah Rodriguez Named Student Adviser to Capistrano Unified Board

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO—Capistrano Valley High School senior Leilah Rodriguez, founder of the Hand in Hand club, which helps children with social disabilities transition from middle school to high school, has been selected to serve as Student Adviser to the Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees for the 2013-2014 school year.

Rodriguez will be a voice and advocate for the District’s 50,000 students during twice monthly meetings of the Board of Trustees. She succeeds Capistrano Valley High School graduate Madison Wolfert.

Along with being the founder of Hand in Hand, Rodriguez is captain of the girls’ golf team, and a member of the National Honor Society, Club Namaste, and Colors of the Middle East Club. She has been a Girls Scout for 12 years and holds a leadership position in Model United Nations. Rodriguez is also a candidate for a full International Baccalaureate Diploma and has earned a 4.5 weighted grade point average. In addition, Rodriguez is active in her church, serving as president of her local youth group and is active in regional youth affairs.

The Student Adviser serves a one-year term and attends all meetings of the Board except for closed sessions. She may cast an advisory vote on all matters except those subject to closed session discussion. The vote is recorded in the minutes but does not affect the outcome of a vote.



Junior and Seniors:

Do you want a reserved parking spot near the front of the upper parking lot for the entire school year?

Do you want to sleep in?

Do you want to avoid that long walk from the lower lot?

The CVHS Foundation has TWO parking spots in the upper lot for auction to the highest bidders on eBay.

Here’s the link:

So, put in your bids – and good luck! The auctions closes soon – on September 21, 2013.
