Alhambra Source Salutes the AUSD Graduating Seniors of 2020: Today, Mark Keppel High School

Location

Alhambra , CA

The Alhambra Source is proud to congratulate the graduating seniors from all five AUSD high schools. You are certainly taking a brave step into the new normal and we applaud your courage, determination and strength in weathering the last two months of a school experience far different than anyone could have anticipated.

Over the last few days we have been highlighting a graduating senior from the high schools with a self-recorded video talking about their school and accomplishments.

Today we highlight Mark Keppel High School, who is represented by Sydney Jou, the senior class president. Mark Keppel’s virtual graduation ceremony, which will be streamed on YouTube, is scheduled for Monday, June 8th at 6 p.m.

Some facts about Sydney:

Age: 17

Residence: Monterey Park

College Choice: UCLA

Career goal: Still specifically undecided but Sydney is majoring in pre-economics business.

Favorite activities in high school: Girls basketball team and Class Council.

What will you miss most about Mark Keppel High School?: “I will undoubtedly miss all of my friends at MKHS. Also, I will miss participating in my  activities, including serving in Council and playing basketball on the team.”

What accomplishments of your class are you most proud of?: “My fellow classmates have also certainly had triumphs of their own. Our Academic Decathlon team won first in the L..A. County Competition this year. Also, several of our senior boys in the All Male Dance Team competed in the World  of Dance competition on TV last year. Finally, our seniors also got to play in the annual Rose Parade this year with the MKHS band and color guard.”

What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?: “I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments that I have made within my time in Class Council and on the basketball team, because in those cases, I was able to achieve them using teamwork and collaboration. Last year, I was VP on Junior Council and we finally pulled off the prom we had spent 2.5 years planning for. As for this year, our Girls Basketball team accomplished its program’s 100th consecutive win in the Almont League.
