Congratulations to Lucy Berry '20, this year’s recipient of $2500 Alumni Scholarship. She is a straight A student, planning to go to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth to study Chemistry, actually neuro-chemistry. As the Co-Editor in Chief of this year’s Redwood Yearbook, she has been able to use her creativity, leadership and enthusiasm to overcome the challenges brought on by the coronavirus. Lucy is a diligent student and involved young woman. She is also the leader of the Tobacco Use and Prevention Education program, taking on the tough job of educating her peers. She is the embodiment of responsibility, integrity and leadership in a time of much uncertainty for her generation. She will become a graduate worth watching!
