Los Alamos High School graduating senior, Kaitlyn Velarde, will be attending New Mexico State University in the fall where she will pursue a degree in Nursing.  Her love for children has inspired her plans on becoming a Labor and Delivery Nurse.  She is a member of Mu Alpha Theta, National Honor Society and has been on the Los Alamos Lady Hilltoppers Varsity Basketball Team for the last four years. She is also employed at LANL as a student intern.  

Through her high school years and basketball, she has gained many lifelong friendships and memories which include District Champions and playing for the state tournament at The Pit at UNM.  Kaitlyn would like to thank friends,  family and teachers who have supported her throughout this journey and who also continue their support for her future endeavors.

Kaitlyn is the daughter of Jerry and Krissy Velarde and older sister to Jenae Velarde from Velarde, NM.
