COVINGTON, Ky. - Studies, service and sports all come naturally to Covington Catholic High School Senior Grant Guess.
Not only is he the President of the Student Senate, Guess is also involved in National Honor Society, Economic Club and Philanthropy Club just to name a few.
When he's not at school or on the football field, the 18-year-old is volunteering for organizations like the Northern Kentucky Special Olympics and the Ronald McDonald House.
"Helping others is something that everyone should do. It's something that should be natural. It's something that we have a right to do," said Guess.
He's done it all while maintaining a 4.02 GPA. When he's not in the game, Guess leads the "Colonel Crazies." That is the school's cheering section for sporting events. He also led students to raise more than $4,000 for needy families at Christmas.
Guess says he was inspired early in his high school career to succeed.
"I listened to a lot of the upper classman, they had lot to say with getting involved, and throughout the years I just kind of built on and built on and just kind of fell in love with the school and all the opportunities that were available here," said Guess.
His teachers and coaches say he is the one inspiring his peers.
"Especially the younger guys in my freshman class, they talk about him all the time. He's the perfect representation of what a Covington Catholic Colonel is," said Covington Catholic football coach, David Werth.
Guess is graduating this year. He's still considering different colleges, but says he hopes to end up at University of California at Los Angeles.
