Holbrook High School seniors Kylie Koerperich (left) and Samantha Smith (right) were two of 15 Ari-zona Milk Producers Scholarship finalists invited to attend the Fiesta Bowl held Jan. 3 in Glendale. “There was a great amount of creativity involved in this scholarship process and selection; thus, to have two students selected as top-15 finalists was a proud moment for Holbrook High School,” commented Principal Lance Phaturos. “Kylie and Samantha are both great kids, who are working hard in the present in order to reach future goals and aspirations.” HHS had an even greater moment to cele-brate when Kylie was selected as the first place recipient of the scholarship in front of 65,000 people at the Fiesta Bowl. Phaturos also acknowledged HHS faculty members Cindy Percy, who serves as junior-senior counselor, and Faith Caffey, College Readiness teacher, for playing an integral role in facilitating the scholarship process.
