Suncoast Polytechnical High School STRIVE Award Recipients
Emily Delgado | For as long as she can remember, Emily Delgado has wanted to help others. She wanted to do more for her niece, who was struggling in eighth grade after experiencing terrible bullying. She wanted to do more when her grandmother, thousands of miles away, fell ill and passed, and her family had to watch the funeral via video call because they couldn’t make it back to Mexico. She has wanted to do more for her mom, who has sacrificed so much so that Emily can focus on school.
Emily’s desire to help others has fueled an interest in psychology and medicine that led her to Suncoast Polytechnical High School, where she could prepare to become a nurse. A 2023 STRIVE Award recipient, she has become a leader in her nursing program and aspires to study at the graduate level and become a nurse practitioner.
