FORTitude Award Given to Carlos Salas

In their nomination the staff wrote that, "Carlos has given up his free time to tutor other Spanish-speaking students in math and has been an integral part of these students' success in the classroom while working full time to support his family."
The FORTitude Award is given by Durango High School and Fort Lewis College to recognize outstanding students who demonstrate academic success, leadership skills, school and/or community involvement, and the character attributes of respect, responsibility, and perseverance. The award comes with a wide variety of FLC experiences that the student recipients can choose from, including guest dj-ing at the college’s radio station KDUR, guest passes to the Student Life Center, tickets to a home game, and chances to meet student athletes and the student body president. Carlos will also be recognized on a Student of the Month plaque at DHS and in the DHS Newspaper, El Diablo. 
Congratulations, Carlos!
