Aldine High junior serves semester in Washington, D.C.
DeLaTorre is the captain of the school’s speech and debate team, vice-president of the Future Business Leaders of America, a co-editor of the newspaper, and a member of the National Honor Society and the student council.
“Carlos is the first person I thought of when we received your letter indicating we were invited to recommend a student,” Aldine High School Principal Cecil Hutson said in a letter to Green. “Carlos’ contribution to Aldine High School is immense. He gives new meaning to ‘Mustang Pride,’” Hutson also said. The mustang is the Aldine High School mascot.
DeLaTorre will serve as a Page from February to June. He lives in the Page Residence Hall in Washington, D.C. and works in the Capitol Building and its surrounding Annex, where he interacts daily with Members of Congress and their staffs.
Former Pages who have become well known include Tiger Woods, Bill Gates, and Members of Congress including John Dingell, Dan Boren, Rush Holt, and Jim Kolbe.
