“It’s exciting and nerve-racking because I’m the only person that gets to go, on this scholarship, so it’s actually me, going,” smiled the 16-year-old junior. “I really like my school, my teachers, and principal. I really appreciate Mrs. Martinez, who helped make this happen. She’s all-around great.”


According to the AATG, Dimple was chosen from a collection of applicants, nationwide, based on her many outstanding achievements in Carter High School’s German program.


“Dimple is a very hard working student and is well deserving of this scholarship,” exclaimed Mrs. Denise Martinez, German Teacher at Carter High School. “Winning this nationwide scholarship shows the amazing students that we have in Rialto.  My students and I look forward to hearing all about her experiences in Germany upon her return in the fall.”


This will be the second year in a row, at CHS, that one of Mrs. Martinez’s students went abroad to travel to Germany. This German study trip will include air transportation to and from Germany, a homestay with a host family, attendance in a German secondary school, and excursions to places of cultural and historical significance.


Dimple stood out among many strong applications from across the nation.


“The selection committee found Dimple’s achievements quite outstanding and was particularly impressed with her many accomplishments and enthusiasm for German,” said Mr. Keith Cothrun, Executive Director of the AATG. “This scholarship gives her the chance to experience Germany firsthand and forge strong connections with the people of Germany. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity—travel abroad assures a better world for us all.”
