Livia is the epitome of a well-rounded student and serves as an excellent representative of Glenbard East High School. Not only does she excel in the classroom, but she is also very involved in the overall school community. This includes being a three-sport varsity athlete, a member of National Honor Society (NHS), and a member of the Principal Student Advisory Council (PSAC), just to name a few. What stood out the most was when asked to be a student representative and participant with our building and district’s initiative to improve the school’s facilities, Livia did not hesitate to volunteer and has given of her personal time during the summer and evenings to be present and assist wherever necessary. Because of all of that she does for the Glenbard East community, Livia is more than worthy to be a G Coin recipient.

WOW! Way to go! As part of her recognition for this award, Livia also got to choose a new item of Ram Wear.


In October, Dean Travis awarded his G Coin to student Esteban.

Great job, Esteban!

She is a hard working and compassionate student who has consistently shown kindness, continues to work hard and is an amazing advocate for herself and others. Valeria arrived in the U.S. 3 years ago and while nervous about the massive change, she did not let the fear of not knowing the language or the academic expectations scare her! Valeria has been a leader when welcoming students that are new to the country and East, regardless of the language they speak. Her warm smile and friendly demeanor have made her an approachable figure for fellow students. She consistently displays the qualities outlined in our Profile of a Graduate, making her a shining example of what we hope all our students will become.

Congratulations, Valeria! You make East a better place!
