SCHOLAR-ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Elliot Serbin will be taking his talents from the campus of Laguna Blanca to Stanford next year, and his academic success makes it no surprise that he’s wanted up in Palo Alto. Serbin, a basketball player, carries a 4.5 GPA with four AP classes, and is the school photographer for its award-winning newspaper, The Fourth Estate. He is a member of the Cum Laude Society and is a National Merit Commended Scholar. Last year, he won the PIEA International Photography Contest in the portfolio category.
He’s been a standout on the basketball team, but has had a tough time with injuries over the past two seasons. Last year he broke his nose, and earlier this season he dislocated his shoulder but was back on the court after just a couple of weeks.
