Natalie Lopez“I was a student at Cal Poly Pomona from 2002 to 2004, but I have to say my favorite memory occurred years later when I became a staff member. In June 2012, I performed in the variety
show on Staff Appreciation Day. I had attended Temple City High School and was a cheerleader in the pep flags branch of the squad. As fate would have it, my green, gold and white flags matched my future college’s school colors. I performed that day, representing the University Library. Many of my co-workers were stunned that I had this hidden talent — a talent that I carried with me and never forgot. I was proud to share it at my alma mater, Cal Poly Pomona!”
