Fernando

Age: 16 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship
Grade:

11

School:

Mt. Whitney High School, Visalia Unified School District

Pillar: Citizenship

"Fernando works very hard every day and, even though he is our No. 1 runner, he would rather not be noticed. He certainly doesn't want anyone to brag about him. He is a quiet leader and role model. Fernando never misses a practice and is 100% committed to Mt. Whitney Cross Country. We wish we had 20 of him."
