At its November luncheon, the Rossmoor Woman’s Club named Los Alamitos High School seniors Cade McConnell and Abby Buzza Students of the Month.
Cade, who plays quarterback on the Griffins’ varsity football team, plans to study sports broadcasting and communication in college. An all around athlete, Cade grew up playing baseball as well as football and participated in the Seal Beach Junior Lifeguard program. At Los Al, he has won MVP and All-Sunset League honors while maintaining a 4.2 cumulative grade point average and participating in activities including ASB, CSF and National Society of High School Scholars.
Abby is a four-year member of the Los Alamitos Girls tennis team and has been a doubles MVP for three years. She has been involved with the California Scholarship Federation since freshman year, and is a co-president this year. After hearing about the global water crisis, she started the Thirst Project club at Los Al, and has been a co-president for three years. She also has been a volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific, and done summer volunteer work in Tanzania and Peru. A member of the Spanish Honor Society and National Honor Society, she plans to study environmental engineering in college.
The RWC honor comes with a $600 scholarship for each student.
