Kiley said that her future plans include attending PRCC to work on her degree in dental hygiene.

She is one of those student who not only participates in sports but is supportive of all sports, peers and classmates. She even made the trip last weekend to West Harrison to watch the Maroon Tide boys basketball team play and win the district Championship.

When asked what makes her an outstanding student she said, “I come to school everyday, I hardly ever miss a day, I do good with my grades, and I respect my teachers.”
