Selena Cortez is a honors student who has displayed leadership on campus in many different ways. She wants to be a paramedic while attending CPCC. She then plans to transfer to UNCC where she will be studying to become a doctor. Selena is a varsity athlete playing softball and volleyball, JROTC Cadat, works as an Athletic trainer and is a PBIS Speaker American Graduate.
Selena’s biggest motivation is her mother and all of her teachers who have pushed her to do better things in life. Her biggest accomplishment was being able to be a part of winning teams on JROTC, volleyball and softball. The best memory of High School for her was listening to the Garinger Education Foundation talk to her class about how much Garinger has changed and how much they’ve helped with scholarships and softball donations. Her advice for the students at the G is “Start string and end strong in everything you do at Garinger.”
