    Bullard High senior Mark Topoozian has spent his high school career helping the less fortunate. His hard work hasn't gone unnoticed. Topoozian is Superintendent Jim Yovino's super star for September.

    He cares about his fellow students and wants them to come to school with a full stomach. He created a food recovery program where all unwanted and wrapped school cafeteria food helps feed 75 to 200 people daily.

    Yovino was very impressed. "He has been getting food. In fact so much that it started at Bullard and now its at ten elementary schools and three middle schools."

    During his junior year Topoozia organized a farmers market every Saturday where students sold fruits and vegetables. That money helped less fortunate students buy sports equipment. Topoozian, student-body president

    at Bullard is very humble. "I just feel it is my obligation to go back and serve my community." When he was a freshman he organized a toy drive to benefit kids at Valley Children's Hospital.

    "You are making such a huge impact in the lives of those families and the children in this Valley that it was easy to recognize you as a super star."

    Topoozian also excels in the classroom. He ranks number one in his class of 700 students. He wants to attend Stanford after graduation and study pre-med.
