Former Magruder Students
Win PTSA Scholarships
Every year PTSA awards graduating seniors, who were former Mustangs, scholarships to help them with their future plans. These students submit the application and a committee of volunteers (including teachers) reads through and chooses a few recipients. These hard working students are well deserving and we wish them all the luck in the future. Congratulations to Doyup Kwan, Alyssa Mirabal, Sarah Beasley, and Lana Mai!
Doyup Kwon is a graduating senior at North High School who plans to study environmental science and engineering in college. Throughout his time in middle and high school, he has been involved with numerous organizations that have fed both his love for the outdoors and his commitment to service, including numerous preservation and volunteer groups. Having also been a swimmer for all four years of high school, he has been able to learn the habits of hard work and determination to help him work towards the goals he has both now and in the future. He hopes to eventually combat the effects of environmental racism and improve the lives of people around him through the tools that he gains in higher education.
