Rachel is a multi-talented athlete who loves to teach

CLARKSTON, WA - When she's not found on the basketball, volleyball or tennis court, Clarkston High School senior Rachel Folsom is studying.

The 4.0 student said her motivation comes from faculty and her parents.

"My mom and dad have always pushed me to work hard and do my best," said Rachel.

The talented athlete aspires to attend BYU next year where she hopes to pursue a degree in graphic design or elementary education.

"I've always loved little kids and I've always liked helping teach people," said Rachel. "I think that would be fun."

So what keeps this multi-talented woman on top of her game?

"Work hard and do my best and not let anyone down," said Rachel. "To strive and achieve and do the best that I know that I can."

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys volunteering with her church youth group and every once in a while will take on knitting.
