Claremont High School

and high hopes.

School senior Rebekah Evans. Not only
had she completed the athletic season as
a member of the CHS’s championship girls’
soccer team, but she will be getting to and
from home and school in considerably more
style than she has in the past.

When former Claremonter
Jacquelyn Umof was a little
girl, she knew she wanted to
be a businesswoman. She loved playing
with her toy business kit, setting up
shop in her room and dreaming up ways
to sell her merchandise. With her childhood
dream igniting the momentum, the
26-year-old Webb Schools alumna and
University of Southern California merit
scholar and graduate is indeed running
her own business: RallyBabe, an online
women’s casual-but-glitzy attire and
sorority clothing store.
However, what Ms. Umof probably didn’t know
as a little girl was that her business aspirations
would play second fiddle—for now—to her current
status as a Laker Girl for the Los Angeles Lakers
