Recent Joliet Central High School graduate Guadalupe Medina (class of 2019) was selected to intern at the Argonne National Laboratory, a unique opportunity that will continue to allow her to explore career options in STEM.

She dreams of one day working as a Walt Disney Imagineer.

Medina attended Cunningham Elementary School, followed by Hufford Junior High School and Joliet Central High School.

While at Joliet Central High School, Medina was a valuable active member of Fearless Females Z Club, symphonic band, Joliet Township symphony orchestra, Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, color guard/flags/marching band, and JROTC.

Through these activities, on top of her rigorous coursework, Medina developed a strong work ethic, perseverance, and big dreams.

Recalling her time at Joliet Central, Medina said in a news release from Joliet Central, “Mr. [Don] Stinson was one of the most inspirational teachers to me because he always told us that we can do it. He always told us that if we put our mind to it, we were able to do it. He also encouraged us to keep going even if we failed once before.”

Medina is now attending Joliet Junior College, pursuing an associate of science. Given her excellent high school record, she was accepted into the honors program at JJC. She has a 3.26 GPA at JJC.

Medina said in the news release, “I currently work for Code Ninjas and this summer will have an internship at Argonne National laboratory on the Cyber Security Research Team to conduct research in a cyber security field to help assist the military and other federal agencies.”
