Scholar-Athletes Here At Trade Tech!

Mary Bessell is one of those students with many talents. She is currently a member of the Trade Tech swim team, and is a real advocate for her teammates as they compete this season in a very tough conference. Not only does she compete in the water, but Mary along with her teammate Memo Yanez, were named to the Deans’ List this semester for their accomplishments in the classroom. Mary also was selected recently for national recognition related to her analytical science presentation and her work in this field. If that wasn’t enough, she also was selected to introduce former President Bill Clinton during his recent visit to LATTC. Not bad for a scholar-athlete who gets up for an exhausting 6am practice, and then attends another practice at 3pm. The word that comes to mind is commitment. Mary represents the best of Trade Tech.
