Child Development class and loving children inspires Fouste to become pediatrician

CLARKSTON, WA - KLEW cares about you and that's why each week during the school year, we team up with Lewiston Orthopaedic Associates to highlight an outstanding local high school student.

KLEW News introduces you to Clarkston High School senior Andrea Fouste.

A future doctor in the making right here in our own Valley. Her name is Andrea Fouste and she's this week's "Academic All-Star."

"I've always wanted to be a doctor," said Fouste. "Ever since I was little that's just what I wanted to do."

She's also heavily involved in FCCLA as chapter president and state officer, but extracurriculars don't slow her down.

"My ninth grade year I was in child development," said Fouste. "Just realizing how much I love children made me realize pediatrician is where I should be."

With a set goal in mind, Andrea dedicates herself to getting all her work done.

"Lists are a big thing for me," said Fouste. "I have a planner. I have like five different calendars that I keep everywhere. That's the only way I can keep organized and being organized is how I've kept everything in place for myself."

Of course she credits her parents for keeping her on the straight and narrow.

"I have a lot liberties so to be able to keep those...the good grades is a fair trade to me," said Fouste.

Congratulations Andrea. You're this week's "Academic All-Star."
