Carolina Gutierrez has a stellar resume. 

She a past Miss Manteca winner and she earned widespread acclaim when the project that she tackled as a part of that honor spread the word about distracted driving to every single East Union High School freshman. 

She can add another award to her already long list. 

Gutierrez was bestowed the Violet Richardson Award – one of a handful of special honors that were handed out by the Manteca Soroptimist Club to high school girls in the community that have earned recognition for being exemplary students and standout members of the community at large. 

While she wasn’t the lone Soroptimist representative from her high school – that honor was given to Ayra Villaverde – Gutierrez stood out as a prime example of the sorts of students that the Manteca’s woman’s advancement group looked when selecting the recipients for both their monthly awards and the annual honors held at the conclusion of every school year. 

“These are young women that make a difference in the community, or more importantly, making a difference in their own lives,” said emcee Sharon Cunial at the start of the night.
