On May 10, 2018 the library was not filled with the usual crowd. Instead, the library was filled with a group of students and teachers who all had one thing in common–the pleasure of knowing Sela Pastrana.

At 12:05, some students rushed to the cafeteria to get food while others rapidly finished assignments for the next period. Others were in the library waiting to celebrate Sela’s signing. Cal State Fullerton is offering Sela a full scholarship to be on their track team.

Along with students Sela’s track coach, Coach Gennessa Ewald gave a speech commemorating Sela’s monumental accomplishments as a student and an athlete.

Sela explained the progression of her running journey in her speech. She said, “My middle school cross country coach, Julius Dichosa, encouraged me to be in track and field, and it was his mentality to ‘never stop running.’’

Among the students and family who attended, there were also teachers and administration who participated in this celebration. Mrs. Crystal Volpe, counselor; Mrs. Bonnie Shockey, English teacher; and Mrs. Katherine Archer, history teacher, attended to celebrate Sela.
