2018 JR. Grand Marshal

Narmeen Ghazawneh  grew up in Avondale and just recently graduated from Westview High School.  As a current member of the Avondale Youth Advisory Commission, Narmeen has found opportunities to stay involved in the community through the various activities and opportunities AYAC provides to its members.  Since joining the AYAC during her Sophomore year, Narmeen has served more than 350 hours of community service while also having the unique opportunity to attend special workshops and conferences, such as the National League of Cities Conference in Washington D.C.  Throughout high school, Narmeen was an active member of several clubs on campus ranging from Spanish club to a peer mediation group, but explains that her favorite one of all was being a member of Jobs for America’s Graduates, or “JAG,” at her school.  Narmeen says that JAG helped her explore her future and because of this program she is now a student at Estrella Mountain Community College majoring in Law with a focus in becoming an immigration lawyer.  Once she receives her Associate’s degree from EMCC she will transfer to Arizona State University’s Law program to continue her studies.
