Roma High Student Mariella Reyes Honored by RGV Border Patrol


Roma High School student Mariella Reyes was honored as one of 14 students from across the Valley for the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol’s new “Head of the Class” honor. The program honors high school seniors who demonstrate exemplary character and determination to succeed.


Reyes was honored for being ranked 1st in her class, as well as the many extracurricular activities she has engaged in. She has been an active member of Student Council since 9th grade, a member of the Math Club, participated in Roma’s Folkloric Dance group, Drama stage officer since 11th grade, and an active member of National Honor Society since 10th grade, currently serving as President of NHS. 


The Head of the Class Program is an award to recognize high achieving scholars from 34 Independent School Districts located throughout the Rio Grande Valley.  The students are nominated by their respective school counselor and submitted to the RGV Sector Border Patrol. Recipients will be recognized bi-monthly throughout this academic school year.   


The recognitions will lead to the RGV Sector’s 10th year anniversary of the “Youth of the Year” Award. Various organizations and community leaders will collaborate with the Border Patrol to honor the Youth of the Year winners with a ceremonial meal and monetary scholarship donation that will be presented during the Youth of the Year Ceremony.   


Congratulations Mariella!
