Soroptimist’s Student of the Month in October is RVHS senior, Sydney Saldana. Sydney was nominated by the Visual and Performing Arts Department for her outstanding achievement in visual arts. Sydney has had pieces of her art on display around town in the RioVision gallery and created part of the mural by the Rio Vista Museum as well. Following her creativity, Sydney is the Art Club’s president this year. Her talents do not stop with just art, as she has been an academic high honors recipient for the past three years and hopes to continue this trend as a senior. Sports are a passion of Sydney’s too. As a member of the varsity volleyball team, she is an outside hitter and plays second base on the varsity softball team. She is the eldest of four daughters to parents, Alex and Jamie Saldana. Sydney plans to continue to make her parents proud by pursuing a degree in speech pathology by applying to CSU San Marcos or CSU Sacramento to reach this goal.
