MILBY_Senior superstar Monique Aguilar received a surprise this week when she was rewarded with a brand new Amazon kindle fire- one of the hottest pieces of technology out there and a college-bound student’s best friend. Monique has been on the honor roll for several consecutive six weeks and also has had perfect attendance.
Those students with high grades and solid attendance records were placed into a drawing for the item. Monique was speechless after she won and proclaimed later that day, “I am so happy i received the kindle fire. It’s a great piece of technology, I enjoy reading- but it will be an adjustment for me because i love reading books- actual books, not books on a tablet. I’m looking forward to learning the ins and outs of the device and taking it with me to college- hopefully to Austin!”
The drawing was held Tuesday morning over the morning announcement loudspeaker and everyone who knows Monique, and knows what a good student and person she is, were glad to learn the news.
“It could not have happened to a better student,” said Maria Aguilar our Dean of Instruction (no relation).
Recently Monique participated in a senior trip to Washington DC where she and her classmates witnessed history, as President Obama was sworn in for his second term on MLK Day.
Monique has assured her Journalism teacher she will explore the tens of thousands of free ebooks and applications available online.
Congratulations Monique and GO BUFFS!
