Chiefs of Santaluces: Melanie Trenco

Haley Hinkofer, Staff Writer

“My favorite memory would have to be a recent trip to North Carolina with my parents and my younger sister. The twelve hour drive had been planned to visit my beloved older brother, Cristian, who’s in the Army. My family and I had not ever been out of the state of Florida, so we had been eager to take advantages of the situation and explore. Focused on taking every sight in, the hours passed by me easily without boredom, and once we finally reached our destination we didn’t hesitate to be in the moment of our long awaited reencounter with Cristian. We began with a tour of his ┬ábase- a small city like a neighborhood, moving on to an aviation museum and an outing to downtown. Our journey ended with long embraces and goodbyes but all of our experience that were long treasured.”
