BLYTHE - Palo Verde High School senior Taylor Cavazos was selected as the Palo Verde Unified School District Student of the Month in April.

Cavazos is the 17-year-old daughter of Rolando and Margaret Cavazos and the older sister to PVHS freshman Caylin. She is currently ranked second in her class with a cumulative GPA of 4.34 and she represented PVHS as the Girl's State Delegate in 2012.

Throughout high school she has consistently challenged herself academically by taking honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses including English Literature and Language, Biology, Physics, Calculus and Chemistry. Her extra-curricular activities include cheerleading where she was captain in grades 9 and 11, a member of the National Honor Society, where she serves as president; and California Scholarship Federation where she serves as vice president. She has also been involved with student government and currently holds the position of Associated Student Body's Commissioner of Pep.

Cavazos is just as active in the community. She is a member of Supervisor John Benoit's Youth Advisory Council, tutored elementary students at Appleby Elementary, been an active member of Blythe Cancer Resource Center as well as participated in multiple clean up days at the cemetery.

After graduation, the motivated teen plans on attending the University of California, San Diego and major in bioengineering. She hopes to become a biomedical engineer in the future and possibly work in the area of cancer research.

"As a member of the Yellow Jacket family, I am always proud to present students such as Taylor who have taken advantage of the opportunities presented them and made the most of any given situation," said PVHS Acting Principal Brandy Cox. "During her time at PVHS, I have witnessed Taylor mature from a mild-mannered 9th grader who was timid and often afraid to share her opinions, to a confident senior who is ready to take control of a situation or task and see it through. Taylor has not only the academic ability to succeed but also the emotional maturity to represent PVHS and the community of Blythe in manner that will make us proud."
