Kellenberg’s Jazmine Fray is a top middle-distance runner and a role model for her peers, whether they run beside her on the track or walk beside her in the hallways.
The junior was selected to be a Marianist mentor during her senior year. Fray will guide freshmen who are still getting used to the high school environment. Three times a week, she will spend home room talking to freshmen, hearing their concerns, answering their questions, and showing them how to behave in school.
Fray has experience with this, as she was a member of the junior retreat staff this year. She helped lead discussions on school and family life. The runner also worked with the SMART program, helping to tutor and guide students at St. Martin de Porres and is an altar server at the school’s church. Fray enjoys singing in the choir and is in the process of becoming a eucharistic minister.
Fray is also involved with Dress for Success, a nonprofit that donates clothes to low income women with children who have been removed from their homes or are in abusive relationships and are seeking employment, and volunteers with the American Red Cross.
To top it off, Fray ended the school year with a 90 average and was named to the honor roll.
