“Kathleen Lozano is an exceptional leader in name and deed.  Not only does she hold the office of President for FCCLA (Family, Community, Career Leaders of America), she steps up and does the behind the scenes grunt work when others disappear.  She is intuitive and sees what needs to be done and does it.  She has been a major organizer, going above and beyond service expectations, in FCCLA events:  Toy Collection, Shirt Design, FCCLA Regional Competitions, Painting with a Paw Fundraisers, Recognition Projects, and our TWIRP week organization.  She is a fun loving pleasure to be around.  She knows how to make work fun.  She is humble, yet strong.  She encourages others.  She has a great sense of humor and an amazing work ethic.  She comes early, stays late and makes checks in between.  She is a stand out in terms of character, priorities and decision making.  She is a true Leader for America”, said Mrs. Bonneaux.

“Kathleen is an outstanding student.  She always goes above and beyond.  She is very friendly, kind and hard-working.  I truly enjoy having her in class”, said Mrs. Deutsch.

“Kathleen Lozano is a sweet and lovely young lady.  She always has a smile on her face and an interesting or cute story to share.  She is an outstanding student, intelligent and interactive in the lesson.  She is a well-rounded student, who takes care of her school work, but also involves herself in extra-curricular activities and clubs.  A great choice for student of the month”, said Mrs. Johnson.

After graduation, Kathleen plans to attend Lamar University and obtain a degree in Nursing or Speech Pathology.
