Michela Paradiso Takes 1st Place on High School Capstone Project (Orig. Posted May 29th, 2012)

Written by: Bettina Dickson

Michela Paradiso, a high school senior at Upper Arlington High near Columbus Ohio, beats all the competition and takes 1st place on her Capstone projects of Alzheimer’s and Memorable Pets!  She has won a nice prize of $750 for all her work and dedication to our cause.  I attended one of her Capstone presentations and was very impressed about her knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease and how something as simple as a Memorable Pet can help someone who is suffering. She blew the competition away! Way to go Michela!!  She will be attending Ohio State University in the fall and will be playing for their soccer team. Michela wants to become a doctor…maybe in the field of geriatrics? :)
