Alexia Romero recipient of BBB’s 2005 Integrity Award


Earlier this month, Alexia Romero, 17, a senior at Elyria Catholic High School, was the recipient of a 2005 Integrity Award.


With the award recognition comes a scholarship for $1,000 to be utilized at any institution of higher learning by the recipient. 


According to Ms. Romero in her essay addressed to the judging panel, “While people can get ahead dishonestly, they lose out on something much more important: self-respect and other people’s respect for you. It is amazing how good you feel about yourself when you know that you have earned everything honestly.”


Ms. Romero plans on attending college. She has been involved in numerous activities and received numerous awards while at Elyria Catholic HS, including: National Honor Society, Who’s Who Among American High School Students, Lorain Catholic Idol Competition, Key Club, Hugh O’Brien Leadership Conference, Yearbook, Drama, Foreign language Club, and Socratic Club.


Ms. Romero, who graduates in May of 2006, was one of 4 winners, including: Raquel Armstrong (Hawken School, Shaker Heights), Dinah Lewis (Shaker Heights HS), and Mark Wright (Cleveland Heights HS).


She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Romero of Lorain, Ohio.


The Award is sponsored by the Better Business Bureau of Greater Cleveland and is part of its Torch Award Program.
