“This year may not have ended in the most conventional way, but I’m extremely happy to be sharing one last win with everyone. I believe the team of officers, along with the members, deserve to celebrate the hard work they’ve put in all year to be recognized as JSAZ’s Chapter of the Year.”KHS senior Juliana Ramirez Rodriguez
