San Marcos’ recipient this year is Jenny Ann Martinez, who received the Phil Womble Ethics Award as a junior last year. Martinez is a two-time all-league selection on the soccer team who carries a 4.5 GPA.
She took AP Chemistry as a sophomore and is currently taking AP Environmental Science and AP Economics. She hopes to major in medicine or kinesiology in college, and is considering such schools as Stanford, Westmont, Pepperdine and UCLA.
She is in the top four percent of her class and is a recipient of the AP Scholar Award. She is involved in the SMHS Link Crew Program, the Fellowship Club, Earth Club and the Santa Barbara chapter of Assisteens.
“She’s a pillar of selflessness,” said soccer coach Christy Lozano.
