El Segundo High School senior Sophie Long is an ABC7 Cool Kid!
“Cool Kids” is a segment on the Southern California news channel showcasing the achievements and endeavors of teens making a difference in their communities through outstanding academic performance, charitable involvement, or both. Long, who hopes to attend California Baptist University this fall, believes that giving time in the service of others is one of the best things a person can do. ESHS Director of Student Activities Robin Espinoza took note of Long’s dedication to community service and nominated her for the “Cool Kids” recognition. Nominees are students between 14 and 18 years of age living in ABC7’s five-county viewing area. Those selected receive $500 cash from ABC7 and Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
