The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan St. Louis held its first leadership program for high school students this summer and Guadalupe Medina Pintor, a senior at Francis Howell North, was among those in attendance.
The High School Hispanic Leadership Institute, held June 12-17, focused on developing leadership skills to be of service in the St. Louis community. To qualify, students had to show a strong interest in being a leader, commit to a full-time experience and provide a letter of recommendation from a teacher or guidance counselor.
At Francis Howell North, Medina is a high-achieving student, sings in the school choir and serves as an editor for the FHNtoday TV publications staff. For FHNtoday, she creates news and feature videos, livestreams sports and anchors podcasts. She is active in the community through the National Honor Society and spends time helping with her father’s photography and videography business. After high school, Medina plans to attend St. Charles Community College before transferring to Lindenwood University.
