KLEW News cares about you, and that’s why each week during the school year, we feature an outstanding student who shines both in and out of the classroom.

KLEW News Anchor Sarah Jacobsen introduces us to Kori Gallegos.

At first glance Kori Gallegos may seem like your average high schooler, but after talking to her for a few minutes, you can see why she’s an all-star.

Kori is a senior at Lapwai High School and saying she’s involved, would be an understatement.

“I'm involved in BPA, I'm involved in Lapwai Explorers,” said Gallegos. “I'm involved in drama; I work in our concession stand .... what else am I involved in.”

And that’s just a few on her already lengthy list. Kori says despite her busy schedule; her ultimate love is reading.

“I read a lot” said Gallegos.

Kori reads an average of over ten books a month.

“Like I read a lot,” said Gallegos.

Kori’s other passion is her family, and she loves being the middle out of five children. It’s helped her grow into who she is today.

“I really love my family, I try to spend most of my time with them,” said Gallegos.

Kori plans to attend North Idaho College next fall. She says she is excited for the transition.

“I'm excited to get my own place and get away from people and grow up,” said Gallegos.

After earning her associates, Kori plans to move to college of Southern Idaho and study history, but she tells me she’s excited to take life as it comes.

Congratulations Kori! You’re this week’s “Academic All-Star.”
