After graduating from Frontier High School on Thursday, Brittneyjo Rodriguez, 18, will attend the Art Institute of California, Hollywood, where she will study media arts and animation.

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.
