4 Coronado students named for ‘Mayor’s 100 Teens’ list
The recently announced Mayor's 100 Teens for 2009 includes four Coronado High School students.
The annual program seeks nominees each spring from 9th to 11th grades who have records of service and achievement, have overcome obstacles, been good role models and have otherwise not been highly recognized. A committee of community members makes the final selections.
“Your support of this extraordinary program not only gives teens a boost of confidence, but gives them even more opportunities to get involved in the community, continue to develop as leaders and meet other successful teens in the Pikes Peak region,” states Mayor Lionel Rivera on the city website.
