CINCINNATI - School is back in session and that means our student of the week is back.
This week we have a young woman, who not only challenges herself to help others as much as she can, but also try and teach others to give back.
Robyn Kerley is a senior at Mount Notre Dame High School. She's a star on the volleyball court and in the classroom. Robyn is also someone her classmates look up to.
"I really try to be a role model in whatever I do," Kerley said. "Whether it's with my own classmates or with the younger students I help, such as tutoring them."
Kerley is in the National Honor Society and model United Nations.
"[Kerley] does tremendous work here with students," said Michelle Shafer, a teacher at Mt. Notre Dame. "She's a role model, and I've enjoyed really seeing her work in the community as well as in the classroom."
Kerley runs clothing and toy drives to help those less fortunate. She coaches youth volleyball and loves getting young women involved in helping out.
"I want them to see how important service is and how important it is to get involved in your community because when you grow older, that's like so important and I just want the younger kids to understand that," Kerley said.
Kerley also maintains a weighted 5.36 GPA while challenging herself with advanced classes.
"I don't know how she finds time, but she does everything so well," Shafer said. " I mean there's a lot of people that do a lot of different things, but Robyn does everything with a smile and 100 percent."
Kerley said helping others is a passion in her life.
"Whether it's just one person's life or a whole group of people, I don't have time for a lot of it, but I try to find as much time as I can, because you only have one life and you might as well live it up and do what you can," Kerley said.
Kerley plans on studying bio-medical engineering in college. No matter where she studies, we know she will continue to make a difference.
Congratulations Robyn Kerley, you're our student of the week.
