My name is Rikki Gonzalez, I am a senior at Redwood High School. I am currently serving as the 2019-2020 president of Redwood’s CSF club. CSF has allowed me to be a part of fostering a culture of academic excellence as well as community involvement. As far back as I can remember, the medical field has always been intriguing to me because of my inclination to help others combined with my love for science. Given this passion, my career goal is to be an anesthesiologist. I am honored to have received this scholarship, thank you to the committee for
selecting me.

Rikki was nominated for this prestigious award by Chapter 512 Adviser Georgette Cheatwood. Matt Shin is Principal at Redwood High School in the Visalia Unified School District.
