Alyssa Arceo accepted at Michael E DeBakey College

The Arceo family is ecstatic at the news that their young Vilma Alyssa Arceo has been accepted to the US based Michael E DeBakey High School for Health Professions. Two years of preparation and hard work have led to this triumphant moment for Alyssa. Michael E DeBakey High School for Health Professions averages at least 1,250 applicants, and only admits about 200 successful applicants. Alyssa is the first Belizean to be accepted at this college.

An overjoyed Arceo family shared this momentous occasion with Alyssa at the Vilma Linda Plaza. The San Pedro Sun found out that Alyssa will leave Belize for Houston, Texas where she will be studying four years of health sciences. DeBakey College is currently ranked as the #1 public high school in the Houston Independent School District, and is a stepping stone for those looking to pursue a medical career.

Vilma Alyssa Arceo, daughter of Elito and Rebecca Arceo, is a graduate of The Island Academy here in San Pedro. Congratulations to Alyssa and her family on a job well done, and The San Pedro Sun joins her family and friends in wishing her a successful four years of studies.

Actually, there is a young Belizean girl who goes by the name of Elizabeth Pollard, niece to San Pedrana, Josie Nunez, who is currently a student at this school. So Alyssa is not the first, but congratulations to her on a great accomplishment regardless.
