The Nomination: Martin is a hard-working young man who strives for his goals, all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. He joined the marching band at Harlan High School as their trumpet section leader for three years and has made the All-Region Band 5A for two years. He has always been a wonderful mentor to underclassmen and upperclassmen while being a member of NHS, NEHS, and SNHS. He started a Mariachi Club, Los Halcones de Harlan, but he has been involved in other extracurricular activities such as Student Council, Bowling, Lacrosse, and the San Antonio Mariachi Academy. With countless hours of community service, he is set to start college this fall with a major in Biology and potentially a music degree. Martin finds his intent for doing these things through his desire of becoming his family’s first generation college graduate.
