"I am one of four students across California selected by the Chief State School Officer as a candidate to be a U.S. Presidential Scholar in Career Technical Education. This nomination comes from my contributions to the CTSO, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). Through FBLA, I have served from the local to the national level and developed a passion for the vast opportunities that arise from Career Technical Education (CTE and Career Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)".
Throughout Park's educational career, she has held numerous leadership roles including the Saugus FBLA Founder and President, and National Western Region Media Director among others.
