It's been a good couple of weeks for STC Senior, Savanna Lopez. She completed her AA with MCC before graduating high school. She was also crowned Prom Queen on Saturday night and last but certainly not least she recently signed on to continue her soccer career.

Lopez will be taking her talents to Grand View University next year where she will be a member of the Vikings soccer team.

"It feels good. I am really excited for the rest of my senior season and it also feels really good to know that my soccer career isn't just ending after this season," said Lopez.
