Tolleson Elementary School District Superintendent Lupita Hightower has been nominated recently to help build a school in Constanza, Dominican Republic. Hightower is one of 50 participants who will be helping lay cinder blocks for the school.

Participants in the Lifetouch Memory Mission include parents, teachers, principals, PTA and NAESP members, school board members, the superintendent and employees of Lifetouch. 

As kids, our parents, teachers, and others often ask us what we want to be when we grow up. Each time I’m asked, the answer has always remained the same—I want to work with marine life!

Over the past two years, I’ve been able to get closer and closer to my end goal via various internship and shadowing opportunities. The most recent was at OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale, and it was an experience of a lifetime!
