Working for his future : Gabriel Velazquez


Senior Gabriel Velazquez holds the student spotlight for this week. He is a very well known student among the senior class of 2020. He is very close with his family, hard working, and is a great student.

One of his favorite places to visit is his grandparents house, because he says that they always end up having a good time and it brings back so many good memories. He likes to spend his free time with his friends and family.  When he has nothing to do, you can always find him outside playing soccer or basketball.

Gabriel is not only a full time student, but he also has two jobs. On the weekends, he works at a ranch and during the week he is an intern at HOMESTAR.

He has a GPA of 3.92 and is a part of the National Honor Society. He says that math is his strongest subject but that history and science doesn’t fall far behind.

When I asked Gabriel about his career plan he stated. 

 ̈Currently, I am working at HOMESTAR where I am a marketing and graphic design intern. They have offered me a job that I can choose to take after my high school career is over. This is a dream job and I couldn’t be more grateful to already have a jumpstart in my career.”
