NORA RAZON is the type of student that comes along just often enough to remind teachers why they got into the profession in the first place. Nora is unifier and believer in all things good about people. Her tireless efforts and desire to effect positive change and growth transcend barriers of race, ethnicity, age, sex and class. For her achievements and contributions she received the following awards: Youth Volunteer Award, California state Assembly Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Community Service, US Senate Letter of Recognition for Outstanding Community Service and Participation in College Track (from the office of Dianne Feinstein) College Track Award (Gov. Gray Davis), and College Track Community Service Student of the Year Award, class 2003. Nora also participates in Student Council, twice serviced as President of Young Latino Leaders, mentors school peers through the SOS program, and founded C.H.I.S.P.A. Chicano’s Healing Injustice, Sexism, Prejudice & Animosity, addressing a growing need she observed firsthand, is one of the most successful multicultural clubs at Carlmont. Nora volunteers her time to fight for environmental and social justice in California and is a youth representative on the San Mateo County Commission on Aging. She is totally committed to academics, community service and life-building experiences.
