Silvia Hernandez-Benito

Sylvia hails from Alicante, Spain, where she attended school until following in the footsteps of her brother Alejandro ‘15 when she came to Knox in grade 10. Family trips to Senegal, Egypt, Morocco and Turkey were eye-opening experiences for Silvia and taught her to not take life for granted. She feels that it is an important responsibility to show leadership in your school, your

community and the world. She has been a member of the Semper ad Lucem Chapter of the National Honor Society since 2016. She is also a Knox Admissions Ambassador and an Ambassador for KB Operation Hope. In January of 2017, Silvia traveled to Guayana with KB Operation Hope to deliver goods to orphanages and to meet with government representatives there. She was a Rotary Youth Leadership Award Participant in spring of 2016 and is also part of the Senior Sibling Program at Knox.
