Student and Staff of the Month

Tatiana Howell is a sophomore at James Madison High School.  She serves in ASB as the Class of 2020 President and embodies the true meaning of being a Warhawk on a daily basis. On campus, Tatiana is tri-athlete student athlete, excelling in Cheer, Field Hockey, and Track. As a student leader, she dedicates her time not only to improving our community on campus, but she is also actively involved off campus in our larger Madison community. She enjoys volunteering at our feeder schools and at hospitals helping with anything the students and patients need. Furthermore, she is the founder of Black Student Union on campus, which promotes more positive images of black students and contributes to positive changes taking place in our community. Tatiana has a passion for coming to school not only to better her future, but to also help support students and better our campus as a whole. In addition, she is proud to be a Warhawk because of the strong, positive programs the school has to offer, the successful athletics department, our supportive administrative team, and the alumni that continue to give back years after they have graduated. Tatiana has not gone unnoticed as the staff feels that she is the definition of a Warhawk and everything it entails. She has a “can do” attitude; when she sets her mind to something, she never gives up and won't stop until the job is done. She hasn't just been noticed by the staff, but her peers jump up in excitement about what she has to offer our student body as well. Her peers feel that she is a great leader and she stands out in her class, with her drive, positive attitude, and pleasant demeanor. She is an amazing person who puts others before herself, and they feel she is a very dependable person. Tatiana also takes pride in her academics and takes her role as a student seriously, maintaining a 3.6 GPA.

Mr. Lorenzo Sanchez is a new member of the Warhawk family.  He has worked at Madison for five months, but has already made a positive impact on the students and staff alike. Mr. Sanchez graduated from San Diego High School and started as a custodian at 18 years-old. After a time, he took a break for a couple of years to pursue other ventures, but ultimately returned to work for San Diego Unified a year and a half ago. Madison High School students love having Mr. Sanchez on campus because his work ethnic and positive contributions he makes to the school and students. He is always around to help students whenever they are in need of assistance, and he both greets and helps with a big smile on his face. He pays special attention to detail, which is an attribute that the teachers and staff admire and appreciate about him. Mr. Lorenzo’s personality fits perfectly with the Madison community and he immediately formed positive relationships with everyone from day one. Mr. Lorenzo loves his job mostly because of the interactions he can have with the students and staff.  Mr. Lorenzo believes that Madison is different than other campuses because of the extracurricular activities, such as IMIN, along with our success in sports. When he is not on campus, Mr. Lorenzo likes to go hiking, doing Jiu-Jitsu, and hanging out with his friends. Although Mr. Lorenzo is a temporary staff member, he has done so much for our school not only through his job, but also with his vibrant personality that brightens everyone’s day.
