Asucena Castorena, a senior at RVHS, is Soroptimists’ Student of the Month for February. The Graphic Design/Digital Imaging Department has nominated Asucena for this honor. She is from a large loving family that has lived in Walnut Grove for more than 17 years. As one of six children, she can often be found helping out with chores at home when needed.

Some of Asucena’s favorite subjects are Math and Spanish. She is a member of the Latino Club and in addition, she enjoys volunteering her time to help with community service in the area.

Asucena is planning to attend either Carrington College or Consumnes River College to purse a degree as a medical technician or possibly as a nurse. She has maintained a good GPA over the last three years, which will help her in her future endeavors in college.
