Joel Esparza has already achieved one of his main goals and now he will launch another important goal – to succeed at a prestigious Ivy League university.

Esparza was excited to be named the Fontana High School High School Vitalict of the 2022 class during the awards ceremony for seniors on May 23rd.

“I did not expect this,” he said. “It has been my goal throughout high school, but I did not think I could achieve it. “It’s very reassuring today.”

Esparza won the highest honor because he compiled an average grade of 4.42.

In addition to his studies, he was very involved in school and community activities. He was a member of the Fontana Conservation Club and was vice president of the CSF in Fohi, and he also ran cross country as a sophomore.

Plus, he volunteered at the Fontana Adult School and with the Fontana Leadership Intervention Program.

In the fall, he will attend Cornell University and graduate in food science, while eventually hoping to bring nutritious food to low-income communities.

Hello in Fohi, Miranda Ordoñez, said her parents have been vital to her success.

“I know we came from very modest beginnings, but I thank them from the bottom of my heart for bringing me here where I am today,” she said.

Ordoñezwho had a grade point average of 4.3, participated in numerous clubs and activities during her years as a Steeler, and was also a student board member for the Fontana Unified School District as a graduate.

She will attend Mt. San Antonio and will seek to become a veterinary technician.
