Kennethia Riley started attending the Roosevelt Boys & Girls Club eight years ago. She is one of 11 kids, and her parents taught her and her siblings to be persistent and to follow her dreams, even when through difficult times. Her membership at the Boys & Girls Club has instilled in Kennethia the value of setting and achieving goals. According to her brother, Cortez Riley, “Kennethia epitomizes a leader of tomorrow!” She developed a strong work ethic as a junior volunteer and youth leader at the Club. She believes in the power of helping others, and she gives the gift of time volunteering at Place of Hope and other organizations throughout the community. She received her Certified Nursing Assistant license and works at a care facility in St. Cloud. She is taking PSEO classes at SCSU. Upon graduation from Apollo High School this spring, Kennethia plans to go into the nursing field to ultimately become a Physician’s Assistant.
