Posted on 03/29/2016
Lakeview Leadership Academy seventh-grader Aaliyah Forrest is the second student chosen as Victor Valley Union High School District's Student of the Month.
Aaliyah carries a 4.333 GPA while taking honors classes and has perfect attendance. She is currently a mentor in the after-school ASES program where she uses her Leadership qualities to show beginning students necessary cooking skills.
While in fifth grade, Aaliyah was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer behind the eye. She went through extensive chemotherapy for over a year, which caused her to lose her hair and suffer extensive pain.
"Aaliyah is the epitome of being a leader," LLA Principal Lonnie Keeter said. "She has overcome adversity and continues to have a positive outlook daily. As the principal of Lakeview Leadership Academy, I am honored to nominate Aaliyah Forrest for Student of the Month for VVUHSD."
