Academic All-Star: Bernadette Roach

Posted: Updated:

It's hard to find an objection to Chiawana's Bernadette Roach. Between her participation in CBC's running start program and a 3.84 GPA, she's clearly set the bar high.

‘I might want to be a mediator, I have a lot of lawyers in my family, so get my law degree and pass the bar and go into mediation, but you never know. My dad was a lawyer, now he's a judge, lot of my uncles do it, so I find it interesting. Helping people but outside the courtroom,' says Roach.
 
A two-sport athlete, her commitment to both the academic and athletic worlds doesn't go unnoticed.

‘She's off the charts mature. That kind of sets her apart, able to get her priorities straight correctly, influence her family has. Family has high standards and she follows through,' says Chiawana Girls Head Basketball Coach Steve Davis
 
And as a standout senior, college is right around the corner.
 
‘My sister's at Franciscan, but all my other siblings went to Gonzaga so I don't know, [my] options are open,' says Roach.
