Filitsa Katsani received a $2,000 college grant from the Rockville Scholarship Foundation, Inc.
"Be the change you wish to see" is Katsani's motto. Originally from Greece, the Rockville High School graduate, says she plans to make a positive impact on the global community. Katsani has accomplished much in the two years she has lived in the United States, maintaining a high grade point average while completing honors and AP classes.
Her connection to the struggling country of Greece drove her to pursue a career in civil or environmental engineering at Montgomery College and eventually George Washington University.
