Each week, Manhattan Beach Patch will recognize individual kids, teens, youth groups and sports teams that wow us with their accomplishments. Send your nominations to Liz.Spear@patch.com. We want to hear about these amazing children and teens, and we will select one each week as the Manhattan Beach Patch Whiz Kid.
We launch our new series with Mira Costa High School freshman Matt Sena.
○ Whiz Kid: Matt Sena, 15
○ School/Church: Mira Costa High School/Manhattan Beach Community Church
○ Accomplishment: Secured a lead role as a freshman in "All Shook Up," a Mira Costa High School theatrical production
○ Key to Awesomeness: Matt's key to awesomeness is his diversity, discipline and tenacity. Named a Fall Scholar Athlete at Mira Costa, he's definitely smart, and has developed a range of skills. He played piano in Mira Costa's Talent Show last week, beating out more than 20 acts to be included in the show. He plays piano, baseball, sings, dances, studies, swims, runs.
