Kyla Riley, Scholar Athlete of the Week

Kyla Riley is a superb example of an all-around great student, athlete and member of her community. Between the 15 nominations received, Kyla’s dedication and hard work is reflected in all those that come in contact with her.

“Kyla is mature beyond her years and has been a great role model for her teammates and fellow colleagues over the years,” Kelly Donyes, employer at GYMagine Gymnastics, said. “She has had to personally struggle with personal illness that would have sidelined many us, but Kyla found the strength and courage to continue to support and excel in sports and school.”

Kyla was diagnosed with a difficult medical illness that causes extreme fatigue, yet it has never slowed her down.

Kyla has been involved in many sports throughout her years at Shorewood High School, including: diving team for four years and named Captain her senior year; gymnastics team for four years –and captain for three years; and she has been on the drill team for two years, helping her team win 2011 State Champions.

“She is an amazing young woman who has a bright future ahead,” Coach Susan Riley said.
