Zachary Alvarez (MS '18) was the valedictorian of North Hollywood High School and a National AP Scholar. As captain of Academic Decathlon, he led the team to a record number of medals and surprised them with a visit to the Salk Institute in La Jolla. As treasurer of Project Dew, Zachary helped collect more than a half-ton of supplies for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. He will study molecular physics and biochemistry at Yale and plans a career in medical research.
