November – Aaliyah Maynard

Senior Aaliyah Maynard was honored at the Soroptimist November 15 meeting as Student of the Month for November.

Aaliyah was nominated for her outstanding achievement in the Rio Vista High School Science department. She was joined by high school counselor Yesenia Alduenda.

Aaliyah’s favorite subjects at RVHS are Math, English, Engineering and Art.

She is on the Honor Roll and Rammie of the Month.

When she is not at school she is active at the Moose Lodge and Youth Group and she works at McDonald’s.

She plans to attend community college first, and is looking into Engineering as a possible career.

Aaliyah says that she tries her best to be a Senior that the underclassmen can look up to. She says “I didn’t participate much during my other years of high school and I’ve come to really regret that. It makes me feel better getting underclassmen to get involved and enjoy our school.”

When asked about the RVHS teachers who most influenced her, Aailiyah commended her English teacher Mrs. Gomes and science teacher Mrs. Gilliland.
