INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – Jesse Santina was chosen to represent Incline High School’s Class of 2024 in Washoe County School District’s annual Countdown to Graduation celebration.

The district’s 20 high school principals choose their recipients. 

“Jesse Santina exemplifies the spirit of excellence and leadership we cherish at Incline High School,” said Principal Tierney Cahill who selected Santina for this honor. “As one of our valedictorians with a remarkable 5.1 GPA, his dedication extends beyond the classroom to the cross country and track teams as well as the nationally ranked ‘We the People’ team. Jesse’s acceptance into the Naval Academy in Annapolis on a Congressional appointment is a testament to his hard work and character. He is a humble leader who brings others along and ensures everyone feels included. Above all, Jesse is a remarkable human being whose achievements and values make him a standout choice for our spotlight student.”
