Graduating Senior: Erick Diaz

Erick Diaz

Catonsville High School

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

Mr. Young, my 10th grade world history teacher, was the sponsor for the community service club that I was president for in my senior year. He had overwhelming enthusiasm and commitment in helping the community, and he inspired and guided me to do the same. He was a great role model not only for me, but for the school and community.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

What I am most proud of was giving back to the school and community. I believe that education is very important so organizing and participating in community service projects like campus clean ups, food drives, and making lunches for the local homeless shelter was a way to give back to the community that supported my education.

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?

After graduation, I am planning on attending college and majoring in environmental engineering. I have always had a lot of interest in environmental engineering. It is a way for me to actively have an impact on the future of the planet.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I see myself as a water management engineer. I'm concerned with waste water disposal and proper water management so I see myself working in projects that address those current issues. In the future I hope to improve the quality of our lakes, rivers, and streams.
