Chino’s Teen Hero


Eric Seliz


Chino High’s very own class of 2018 graduate, Araceli Talavera, has been named “City of Chino’s Teen Hero.” Her achievements and dedication have set a prime example of what a Cowboy should be. 

Araceli was a hard-working student throughout her four years attending Chino High. She challenged herself with many advanced classes and participated in many extracurricular activities. She served as her class president for two consecutive years. 

Outside of school, she was just as motivated. Araceli started as a member of the Teen Advisory Committee and served countless hours of community service. It soon led her to serve as part of the Youth Senators Program, on top of already serving with the Youth Advisory Committee. As of September 18th, 2018, she has been sworn into the City of Chino’s Community Services Commission. 

The young adult was awarded the title, Chino’s Teen Hero, last Wednesday during Chino Day at the L.A. County Fair. 

“I like to believe that everything I do is a testament to the people that I been surrounded with.” said Araceli. 

Araceli currently attends CSUSB under the ROTC program. She majors in Business Administration and hopes to become a well-known photographer in the future.
