The whole team at 100.5 Fresh Radio, Darling Insurance, Lighthouse Private Wealth and PJ’s Diner would like to congratulate Emily Kellar, our February KID WITH CLASS for the 2017 / 2018 school year. Emily goes to Adam Scott CVI in Peterborough and was nominated by Elizabeth Rodney (Emily’s mom).

Here is the nomination that her Mom sent in:

I would like to nominate by daughter, Emily Kellar. She is 15yrs old and a grade nine student at Adam Scott CVI. Emily is not only an amazing hard working student but also a very generous, caring and supportive young lady. In the last year she has taken the academic world by storm. She completed grade 8 on the Honor Role as well as achieving the Penny Pierce Technological Literary Award. Emily was also the first place winner of the Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day Literary Contest and then went on to the next level of competition and won first prize yet again! Emily has worked very hard during her first semester of grade 9 and has earned an over 90% average thus far. Her excellent math grades have her nominated by her teacher for a week long Computer Science experience at the University of Waterloo in May. Sports plays a very large part in Emily’s day to day life, be if for fun or competition she can always be counted on to do her very best and be a source of support and encouragement to her team mates. This past year has included; Ice Kats Bantam House League -ended the season as the first place team Chemong Public School Basketball – KPREAA 2nd place Chemong Frisbee – first place KPREAA North Intermediate Mixed and then first place board wide KPREAA Intermediate Ultimate Frisbee Championship Chemong Volleyball Bridgenorth PUL Ultimate Frisbee Competitive Ultimate Frisbee -Nationals in Ottawa Peterborough Youth House League Basketball – first place Adam Scott Junior Basketball Adam Scott Girls Hockey Indoor Winter Frisbee in Whitby Peterborough Ultimate Indoor Frisbee League Now if that was not a busy enough schedule she also donated her free time to be a lines keeper for the Adam Scott Junior Football team, attended PRHC volunteer information session and is waiting for an opening, and is now volunteering with the CAN skate program assisting 3-5yrs of age to learn how to skate twice per week. Emily is a very active, dedicated and successful young lady who at a very early age has learned to prioritize and accomplish whatever she sets her mind to. Even with her academic and athletic commitments she still manages to find time to bake her famous cookies, create one of a kind greeting cards, spend time with friends and family as well as be an incredible help around the house. Emily’s dream for the future is to become Pediatrician. Time will tell, but no matter what she chooses I have no doubt she will be awesome!
