The Best and The Brightest of 2024



Age 17
Buckeye Union High School 

An advocate for the minority voice and female interest on campus, Letom is an exemplary student. She is on pace to be valedictorian of her school, a position she’s held all four years at Buckeye Union High School. Letom is involved in the Buckeye Youth Council, Police Cadets, National Honor Society, FBLA, an officer on Student Council and president of Key Club. 


One of the ways she’s making an impact on her community is through the Buckeye Youth Council, where she has a student voice in community matters and is able to affect change at the political level where applicable. 


“I have been involved in Student Council since middle school and met amazing, goal-driven people who have allowed me to find a voice and speak up for many minority and female students,” said Letom. “These leadership experiences have allowed me to gain public speaking skills and vocalize opinions.”


She loves volunteering in her community. Letom recently helped organize an event that brought 100 local artists to downtown Buckeye.


She’s a Questbridge Prep Scholar, one of the high performers in the state, and a Jack Kent Cooke scholarship finalist.  She recently had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. with the League of Cities meeting. 


She plans to study Political Science at the University of Chicago and there’s no doubt she’ll have a bright future!
