CHS Senior Standout: Seth Trujillo

After living all over the country, due to his father’s job in the military, senior Seth Trujillo and his family were lucky to be stationed in Coronado in 2008 — so lucky that once they settled in, they decided to stay.

Attending Coronado High School has been a self proclaimed “great experience” for Seth. Seth professes that he loves the high school. He says, “whenever I get bogged down in studies I can look up and admire the campus.” Seth’s most memorable moment while at CHS was when he was able to participate in the homecoming king competition. His favorite teacher was Honors/AP World History teacher, Mr. Heaphy. “Even after having us students for two years, he was still able to captivate us every single day, with his jokes and his teaching,” says Seth. In these last few months at Coronado High School, Seth is most excited for graduation.

Next fall, Seth will be heading to Phoenix, Arizona to attend Arizona State University. Seth chose ASU because they have a wonderful rugby program that has been quite successful. While at ASU, Seth plans on majoring in criminal justice. In ten years — if his career in rugby does not take off — he wants to join the military. Seth says,”In my eyes, serving the great country we live in is something everybody should do.”

One thing that many people do not know about Seth is that, “My family and I are related to a Dominican Republic dictator from the early- to mid-1900s, so we are actually banned from the Dominican Republic.”
