May 2014 - Student of the Month Award
Palo Alto College
Cynthia Archambault is the May 2014 La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month. Cynthia is currently attending Palo Alto College where she is seeking to obtain an Associate of Science degree in Chemistry. She currently holds a 3.98 grade point average and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Sigma Alpha Pi honor societies. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and plans to attend pharmacy school after her time at Palo Alto College.
Cynthia is one of Palo Alto College’s peer advisors at the Undergraduate Advising Center where she specializes with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematic majors to bridge the gap that sometimes exists between advisors and students. Being a science major herself, she has volunteered in the Chemistry Department for the 2013 and 2014 “Discover PAC” events.
Cynthia also works at an optometrist office as a technician where she can continue to learn. She has had many encouraging people who have helped along the way. Her parents have been there since the beginning and have instilled in her the values that she now follows and have taught her to do what is right no matter the consequence. Coming from a small school, her high school teachers taught her to work hard and help others. Lastly, the faculty and staff at Palo Alto College have taught her to enjoy what she does and encouraged her to follow the major she is now following.
