Local high school students Andrew Carp and Kristen Belinsky were honored by trustees at the Mountain View-Los Altos district board meeting Monday evening as students of the month for March.
Carp, a senior at Los Altos High School, was recognized for his strong academic record, commitment to athletics and natural leadership on campus. In addition to taking on a rigorous course load, Carp is involved in the school's environmental club, and started an incentive program for students who bike to campus. He has played basketball, and run cross country and track throughout his high school career. Carp is also a musician, participating in orchestra and Jazz Band at school. Last summer he traveled to Europe where he performed piano--he has played the instrument for seven years.
