Robby knows his hard work today will pay off down the road

CLARKSTON, WA - Doing well in school has always been a top priority for Clarkston High School senior Robby Devleming.

Robby, who's a member of the National Honor Society, has a 3.8 GPA and still finds time to be an outstanding athlete on both the football field and basketball court.

"I want to have a good job someday," said Robby. "I want to have a steady career and I want to get into a good college and I know that I need good grades to do that."

Robby has plans to attend either the University of Oregon or Washington University in St. Louis to pursue a degree in economics or finance. He said he's always been fascinated with numbers and looks forward to working with them as part of his career.

"With math, the numbers always add up if you've done it right, so I like that," said Robby.

Although making time for school isn't always Robby's favorite thing to do, he says it's well worth the effort.

"I guess the real payout for it will be once I've gotten to where I want to be in the future, then I'll know that what I did, was really worth it," said Robby.

Congratulations Robby, you're this week's Academic All Star.
