LISA E. GERBER is not only successful as a well-rounded student at Mills High School, but is described as one who is “truly altruistic.” “She is a gentle, kind and polite woman whose idealism shines through everything she does.” Lisa has been a member of the California Scholarship Federation, an honor society, throughout high school, taking a challenging academic program which included honors and advanced placement classes. She has also participated in track and field and cross country running since she was a freshman. Lisa has participated in school government and was an alternate nominee for Girls State which represents the respect and status she has in her school community. She has recently volunteered as a counselor at the Outdoor Education Program sponsored by San Mateo County, where she supervised a group of elementary age students for five days. Lisa’s time is largely devoted to training Guide Dogs for the blind which she continues to do for one year, beginning when the puppy is two months old. This year-long project requires total devotion, discipline and patience and requires her to return to the dog for the next phase of its development. Her ultimate goal after college is to become a veterinarian.
