Booker High School STRIVE Recipients
ERICK REYNOSO | With Erick’s childhood split between the United States and Mexico, he struggled to grasp English in school while Hispanic friends teased him for his halting Spanish. Erick’s turnaround started in his freshman year when he learned how to develop a postsecondary plan and build leadership and essential skills. He started Booker’s first UnidosNow Club to help underperforming Hispanic students and served on the superintendent’s advisory board. Erick excelled in rigorous honors classes and is graduating with a 4.4 GPA. He’s majoring in computer science at Florida State University and hopes ultimately to be the first in his family to earn a doctorate degree.
