Pasadena Memorial High School seniors Alondra Cruz and Helen Vo, along with Dobie high school senior Valeria Lomas were recently honored as recipients of $1,500 student trainer scholarships from Houston Methodist St. Johns Hospital.

Cathy Supak, outreach athletic trainer for Houston Methodist St. John, and Randall Dugas, Pasadena ISD district athletic trainer, surprised the three recipients with a presentation in front of parents, friends and teachers at their respective campuses. 

Cruz and Vo are both in the top 10 percent of their class at Pasadena Memorial, ranking 42 and 29 out of 778 graduating seniors.

Cruz, a student athletic trainer for two years, is an award-winning artist who won Best of Show in ceramics at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. She plans to attend the University of Houston in the fall to study graphic design.

Vo is an award winning student athletic trainer who placed third out of about 1,200 trainers in the Greater Houston Athletic Trainer Society Student Trainer Workshop. In addition, she has accumulated over 130 hours of community service and plans to attend the University of Texas in the fall to study biology and pre-med.

Ranking 127th in her class of graduating class of 991 students, Dobie senior Valeria Lomas was named to the Academic All-State program by the Texas State Athletic Trainers Association and is a member of HOSA and Student Council. She plans to continue her education at Houston Baptist University this fall and pursue a degree in nursing.

The scholarships are part of Houston Methodist St. John Hospital’s partnership with Pasadena ISD to provide sports medicine services and financial support to the district’s student athletes, coaches and athletic trainers.

“We believe that nothing says more about community than school athletics,” said Jace Duke, manager of athletic training services at Houston Methodist St. John. "We are committed to our partnership with Pasadena ISD and want to assist students who are looking to continue to the next level.”
