Aldaz is the recipient of the annual LAGC scholarship. He has not yet decided which university to attend in his pursuit of a degree in biochemistry as the first step before heading to medical school. Aldaz has spent many hours working on various community service projects. His interest in gardening led him to take charge of a school garden.
LAGC was created in 1947 to stimulate interest in gardening, aid in protection and conservation of natural resources, and promote community beautification.
