Student of the Week - Analeeza Gonzalez

12th Grader at West Mesa High School.

What do you like about school:  I like the teachers and kids at WMHS.  Anyone who wants a good education can get one here at West Mesa.  The NJROTC program is why. I’m the NJROTC battalion commander and the commander of our award-winning unarmed drill team, and I enjoyed winning State Drill Champions last year.  I really like my teachers and classes, and I look forward to graduating in May.

What is your favorite class?  NJROTC IV is my favorite class. I’ve been in the program for four years. I enjoy the structure and unit activities, and Senior Chief and Major are preparing me for my life after graduation. Their mentorship has had a considerable impact on me.

Activities and hobbies, inside and outside of school:  I’ve also participated in other activities here at West Mesa, including Powder Puffs, Homecoming Court, and community service.  Outside of school, I work at Albertsons and often babysit my siblings.

Plans for the future:  Become a United States Marine!  Then see where my future leads me.
