Our series Everyone has a Story will now include stories of pride, stories of commitment, stories of challenges, stories of dedication and much more, displayed as the STMHS Wall of Pride.

Diaz, Adriana photoA Story of Community Service

Adriana Diaz, a senior at STMHS. She is one of the 2017 Martin Luther King Recipient. Along with education being a priority in her life, being involved with the community is just as important. From being the Youth leader of Oasis of Restoration church, to the Assistant Director of the New London Youth Talent Show; gives me the opportunity to experience diversity in many perspectives. As Adriana moves onto college she is planning to become a sociologist to study interactions between different cultures and life beyond her community. We look forward to seeing the difference Adriana will make in many lives.
