Elizabeth Scarcella receives Closet of Herndon Scholarship


Elizabeth Scarcella wrote in her scholarship essay, “I went from public school, to private school, to home schooling and never saw any progress. Mountain View gave me a thirst for knowledge. Teachers know how to push a student to do their best without pushing them away.” Elizabeth’s Physics teacher says, “Elizabeth was a great personality in the classroom, always staying motivated and rallying others to do the same.”   Her Chemistry teacher wrote “Elizabeth is always more than willing to help her fellow students when they are struggling. She displays a positive attitude about learning, asking questions that go above and beyond the scope of the class.” Elizabeth’s counselor noted that Elizabeth earned almost a 4.0 GPA in the 13 courses she took at MV. Elizabeth plans on pursuing an education degree in college.  She wrote “I want to be the teacher who shows students how much potential they have”.

 Elizabeth was the entertainment at Mountain View Alternative High’s June 2014 Graduation, singing “That’s Life”:
