Local high school senior attends State of the Union address as McSally's guest

Posted: Updated:

A high school senior from Tucson will be at the State of the Union address Tuesday as a special guest of Congresswoman Martha McSally.

 Lupita Romero, 17, will be McSally’s guest on Tuesday. Lupita has been active in her community. She leads outreach efforts, after-school programs and service projects.

She completed the Help-A-Kid program and enjoys participating in other Boys and Girls Club programs.

Lupita said attending the State of the Union is the opportunity of a lifetime.

"Seeing the president present the State of the Union, it is an honor to do that," she said.

"Lupita is a great example; a senior in  high school, nominated by the Boys and Girls Club," said McSally. "I only have one seat. I wanted it to be something that is important to somebody in the community and something meaningful for that person."

Lupita aspires to become a lawyer and eventually, a Supreme Court justice.
