Lucero Alcaraz had beauty and brains. Graduating from Roseburg High School, she had been the recipient of a much sought after UCC Scholars award program that gave her a full scholarship to attend Umpqua Community College. She was a brilliant young woman with a promising future.
Lucero’s goal was to become a pediatric nurse, a very demanding and rewarding career to embark on. This may have been no surprise to those who knew her best as she came from a large family and was known as the ‘responsible one’ of her six siblings.
Her older sister remarked on Facebook that she knew Lucero would have gone on to do great things. A talented artist who was quiet and kind, she is remembered for being sweet and selfless by her closest friends.
