On Friday, March 2, 2018, Linda Delgado Libien ‘18 and Ryan Green ‘18 were two of 15 students from eight St. Petersburg area public and private high schools that were selected for the 79th Annual Rotary Club Outstanding Youth Awards, an honor that distinguishes high school seniors who go above and beyond their duty to the community. Each students essay was on the topic of “doing good by doing the right thing”.
“Linda and Ryan are both very deserving of this recognition,” said Jeri Williar, Director of Counseling and College Placement. “They have excelled both in and out of the classroom. They represent Admiral Farragut Academy very well.”
Linda Delgado Libien ‘18, a 7-day boarding student from Mexico, has been active on the regiment this year as the battalion commander in charge of around 150 cadets. Linda is responsible for the cadet’s appearance and discipline. Linda is also involved in volleyball, track, drill team, Mu Alpha Theta, and enjoys sailing at the waterfront. Her community service involvement has included blood drives at Farragut and also going on Catholic missions where she shares food, clothes, and the gospel to rural communities. Linda’s most proud accomplishment at Farragut has been getting to know a lot of cultures very well and learning a little of each language. After graduating from Admiral Farragut Academy, Linda will go to college at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to study Aerospatial Physiology.
Ryan Green ‘18, a local day student who has attended Farragut since the 5th grade, also holds a leadership position on the regiment as the 3rd Company XO. During his time at Farragut, he has been heavily involved in National Honor Society, baseball, and band. His biggest accomplishment at Farragut has been being a part of the band, becoming band company commander, and being part of its transformation. Ryan is an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, participates in Adopt-A-Mile and roadside cleanups, and volunteers at his church, local food drives, and blood drives.
