Angelica Holt, a senior at North Shore Senior High School, was recognized as the November Galena Park ISD Student of the Month during the November 7 North Channel Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon in the Monument Room of San Jacinto College North.
Holt was recently named a National Achievement Scholar in the National Achievement Scholarship Program. She was recognized for her exceptional academic promise along with approximately 4,700 Achievement Scholars throughout the nation. The National Achievement Scholarship Program is an academic competition established in 1964 to provide recognition for outstanding Black American high school students.
Angelica is a member of National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, Health Occupations Students of America, Academic Decathlon and more. She said that she has been able to grow more as an individual and appreciate all the things that have been given to her.
Angelica says that participating in those activities helps keep her focused on achieving all of her goals and that she has learned to work harmoniously with her peers.
Angelica Holt is the youngest of five children of Jerry and Lois Holt. She says that discipline was never an issue for her. She learned from the example of her eldest brother who was often in the principal’s office for all the wrong reasons.
Angelica says that “Education has always been my focus and I have done my best to ensure that I have and maintain a divine education worthy of imitation.”
