DOWNEY – Warren High School senior Hilda Atuncar beat out more than 10,000 high school students across the country to win a $10,000 college scholarship from Nordstrom. Nordstrom awarded the scholarship to only 80 students in 2014.
Hilda earned a 4.13 GPA as a junior at Warren High last year. She is enrolled in Honors English and AP Spanish, and is a member of the Book Club, secretary of the Mock Trial Club and vice president of the Garden Club.
“I am so grateful that I was chosen, it is still so surreal to me,” said Hilda, who plans to attend the University of Chicago next fall.
“Hilda is a great asset to the district and our community,” said Warren High principal Laura Rivas.
