To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to take a moment and introduce you to Miss Hailey Ortega. I have known Miss Ortega for nearly three years as one of my most dedicated Yearbook students as well as one my most consistent performers in AVID 12. In those three years I have found her to be a highly responsible, dedicated student leader on our campus.
Miss Ortega works hard on a daily basis to make sure she achieves the goals she as set for herself. As a yearbook student she worked her way up over the last three years to become Editor-in-Chief. She works with each of the section editors to ensure that all the events that take place at CCHS are covered and that each spread is completed to her high standards. In addition to being in charge of the yearbook, Miss Ortega is also part of Cesar Chavez High School’s Student Leadership Team. She is senior class treasure and has been a part of ASB for a number of years. She is seen by her peers and teachers as a positive role model and one who can be counted on.
In addition to being a student leader, Miss Ortega is also a strong academic. She has maintained a 3.75 GPA while taking honors courses. She has maintained these grades while being involved in Varsity Softball and the above mentioned leadership positions. She has accomplished these things by executing strong time management skills along with her innate dedication to achieve her goal of going to college.
In short, Hailey Ortega is a highly dedicated young woman who achieves the goals she sets forth for herself. I recommend you to her without reservation. She will be a great asset to your institution.

Hailey participated on the 2017 golf team she made a huge impact on the team. She as I like to say was the glue of the team. She made sure all team member worked together for a successful season. She has a great attitude and is not afraid of hard work. Although she had never played golf she kept an open mind and made herself a decent player. Hailey took the core concept of the game like responsibility and preservance and connected them with her day to day activity. Hailey is future leader and ready to take flight.
