PEAK Celebrates Mentor, Loreen Strasser and PEAK Scholar, Alyssa Alverio

With graduation quickly approaching, PEAK mentor Loreen and senior Alyssa reflect on the past four years. How would you describe your mentor/mentee when you first met them? Alyssa: Loreen had an enormous amount of energy and I was extremely nervous to be around her. She was very happy to meet me and it made her easily likeable. Loreen: Alyssa has always been outgoing, bright, and feisty! She was still figuring out what kind of student she was going to be. Always smart, but a bit rebellious. How has your mentee grown since freshman year? Loreen: Alyassa has become more confident, knows what she likes and doesn't like, and if she wants to acheive something, she can and does!
