The graduate, daughter of Frank Rodriguez, credits her success to her support system. At 8 years old, Brittneyjo lost her mother to breast cancer and was raised by her father and brother, Michael, 19, also a graduate of Frontier High.
Brittneyjo had two people at school to watch over her: security guard Tony Vasquez and principal Wayne Lamas.
“They’re really good family friends,” Brittneyjo said. “They would push me to make sure I was caught up on everythingandhadaBaverage in my classes.”
Brittneyjo was in the geography club. She took on the role of a prosecution lawyer in mock trial and worked as secretary of the associated student body at Frontier High.
“I really didn’t think ASB was something I would do, but I loved it,” she said.
Brittneyjo won a People’s Choice Award, voted on by Frontier’s teachers and staff, in 2011. The Optimist Club of Camarillo awarded her with the community service award in 2012.
