Electra Mustaine has what it takes. This beautiful 16-year-old Fallbrook youth has significant academic achievements under her belt and will be making her way off to college soon while working on launching a career in country music. The daughter of Dave and Pam Mustaine, Electra is carrying forward a family tradition in music – albeit a different variety than her father’s acclaimed success with heavy metal band Metallica and thrash metal Megadeth.

A student of Linfield Christian School, Electra was recently recognized by The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) for superior academic achievement. The society recognizes top scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, scholarship, and community commitment.

"On behalf of NSHSS, I am honored to recognize the hard work, sacrifice, and commitment that Electra has demonstrated to achieve this exceptional level of academic excellence," said NSHSS founder and chairman Claes Nobel. "Electra is now a member of a unique community of scholars – a community that represents our very best hope for the future."

With the distinct goal of having a career in country music, Electra is already on her way, co-writing songs with Nashville contacts. Not only does she write her own material, she recently performed at the San Diego County Fair at Del Mar on July 6, singing known country hits as well as one of her originals.

Christian-centered Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. is the college that Electra has decided to attend. Electra is likely drawn to the school since it offers an academically challenging education and stresses disciplined intelligence, compassion, courage, and faith.

Congratulations Electra! What a great future you have in front of you. I met your parents years ago, when you first moved to Fallbrook. I got to know your mom a bit and was so impressed with how down to earth, loving, and committed your parents were to their Christian faith. I cannot be more excited for you and pray that you have the same strength of character as both your parents do in a very challenging, but exciting industry. Kudos kiddo! I hope you make it big!!
