    “My most memorable experience at Lancaster High School is participating in the poster hang-up days,” Gianna said. “Although it sounds crazy, I love being at the high school on Saturday with my friends, working to make the school beautiful. It is so cool to see the finished product, a school with posters on the walls and paint on the windows, and know I contributed to this final product.”

    Gianna said that after obtaining her degree in biology, she plans to continue her education into graduate or medical school. She said she would love to enter the medical research field, giving her the opportunity to study diseases and improve treatments for patients.
