Scholar of the Week: Family girl looks toward nursing career

Posted: Updated:

Students are back in school - which means it's once again time for the return of our Scholar of the Week.

We're starting the school year off with a Hanson High School senior who cares about her performance just as much - if not more - in the classroom as on her playing fields and courts.

Ashley Robinson is our Scholar of the Week.

"She's a great gal to have around school," explains Hanson High School teacher Roxane Alley.

Whether it's on the court, the field, or in the classroom - Hanson senior Ashley Robinson knows how to succeed.

But the loaded class schedule, numerous activities and plans for the future aren't the first things she talks about.

"I'm a big family girl. I hang out with my family out there," says Ashley.

Ashley plays volleyball, basketball and runs track.

She's a member of student council, and works on the school paper and yearbook.

She says pre-cal is her favorite class and in the future - she'll be a registered nurse.

"With that she's prepared with classes that will benefit her the most," says Alley.

Her teachers say Ashley has set her goals high - and will achieve them.

Alley explains, "The thing with Ashley is - people see her determination and dedication on the court, I get the advantage of seeing how determined she is in the classroom."

As our Scholar of the Week, Ashley will receive a hundred dollar scholarship from the Central Electric Cooperative Association, a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
