Nathalye Buitrago’s counselor, Mr. Todd, says that she really discovered her academic drive when she transferred to Mountain View. A little academic success turned into a desire to learn new things and to the job as Editor-in-Chief of the online school newspaper, The Mountain View Mirror. Although Nathalye was only required to attend two classes this semester, she spent even more time outside of the classroom learning and working very hard. In addition to fulfilling her duties on the newspaper, Nathlaye is a founding member of the Mountain View Media Lab which provides Media Production & Social Media guidance to businesses in Northern Virginia. Nathalye also won the Fairfax Peace Award this year. She is more than a deserving winner of this scholarship.
