    Denisse Huerta and Marisol Frausto are two proud Olympians after receiving news they had received the 2011 Gates Millennium Scholarship. I went to my mailbox during spring break and saw the envelope; I was so nervous about opening it and when I did and saw that I had won, I just started crying, said Marisol Frausto. I was afraid to come to Leuzinger when I fi rst came here, but my parents told me that a school does not defi ne who you are, you defi ne yourself! I am really proud to be an Olympian; we have a lot of great students here.

    Denisse Huerta said I feel this scholarship is a gift, Ive worked hard for it, but it is now my responsibility to preserve it.

    Both students aspire to work toward their doctorate degrees majoring in biochemistry.

    The Gates Millennium Scholars program selects only 1,000 talented students throughout the United States. The scholarships are good-through-graduation scholarships to use at any college or university of their choice. The Gates Millennium Scholars Program was established in 1999, and was initially funded by a $1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The program has funded more than 13,000 scholars since the inception of the program. Last year, three students from Lawndale High School received the scholarship.
