Giving Back Through St. Cloud Christian School, Emily Robinson is an All-Star Student [VIDEO]
ST. CLOUD - Classmates and teachers all agree: senior Emily Robinson has a knack for getting stuff done.
Robinson is making a difference as a leader at St. Cloud Christian School. She's student government co-president and has seen the group grow in size and significance from when she first started two years ago, when they only had one other person sign up.
"It's crazy. When I first started we only worried about doing a lock-in a year and planning formal. But this year we have weekly agendas of things we need to plan."
The group handles anything from school policy to events like lock-ins. Robinson says one of their top accomplishments was bringing the Pledge of Allegiance to the school every day.
"At the beginning of the school year there was concern that we did not have the Pledge of Allegance playing in the morning. So we spent weeks making sure we could get [it] back. I'm really proud of what we were able to do with that."
Robinson is also president of the school honor society and gave back during the Christmas season by helping her senior class pack Christmas shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Math teacher Lorrie Oistad says Emily has grown into a leader with confidence and a deep desire to give back to others.
"When I first met her she was very introverted and I think God really started working and I could see God moving in her and changing her to be the person that he's created her to be, which is this great leader."
Robinson is considering attending college at the University of Minnesota to study biology in a pre-physician program. Her dream is to become a physician's assistant at Shriners Hospital for Children.
"I actually went down there two years ago for a foot injury. It's completely free for all children no matter their family or income. I think it would be amazing to work at a place like that."
