Tonight at a banquet at Stoney Creek Inn, the winners of the Columbia Daily Tribune’s Hero Awards were announced. RBRO was nominated for our work with The Intersection and was in the Youth Volunteer category along with Boy Scouts Troop 706, Mary Cleek, Madison Falcone and Cierra L. Nelson. The five core leaders for the Intersection, Stephen Turban, David Wang, Rasheeq Nizam, Nomin Jagdagdorj and Aniqa Rahman, were all able to attend along with our teacher sponsor, Mrs. Weaver. After a nail-biting evening, RBRO was announced as the winner for the Youth Volunteer category. A $400 prize will be donated to the Intersection. We were extremely honored to be nominated for this award and even more honored when we won amongst such worthy competition. When it comes to giving back to the community, however, we really are all winners.

Kelsey Harper

Kelsey Harper is one of those girls. The ones that has her essays done before the teachers assign them. The kind that spends 10 hours studying for a test you didn't even know you had. Kelsey is the definition of overachiever. And in case that isn't enough, she is also a walking, talking Wal-Mart. Need a Band-Aid? Kelsey has a Spider-Man one. Need a Kleenex? Kelsey has a whole box. Need extra undies after laughing a little too hard? Don't hesitate to ask Kelsey! You can almost always find her studying in the choir hallway or slaving away after school at show choir practices; probably accompanied by her two pillow pets. Get to know Kelsey and she will no doubt save you multiple times, whether it's answering that one calculus question you didn't understand, giving you an emergency Alka-Seltzer, or just being a great friend.
