Avery Kelley is not only a team player on the court but in her school and community as well. She represents the Panthers as a member of their volleyball, basketball, and softball teams. In her community, she serves the homeless at the Lord’s Diner.
While she loves being present in all those things, she dreams of being “on a cruise to Jamaica, Grand Cayman Islands, and Mexico.”
As long as she’s been here, however, many of her fond memories have involved “team dinners on Thursdays.” Kelley recalls those dinners as “a chance for all of the girls to get closer together and build a strong relationship.” In fact, she made a point to tell us that “between the team and the food was always great.”
Clearly, her teammates have all had an impact on her life. When asked who she would choose if she had to name the teammate who impacted her most significantly, she responded, “Madi Grady.” She highlighted Grady’s positivity and willingness to “help any teammates in need.”
As undeniable as the bond between these teammates is, even more so is the bond of family. A family which, in the last year, showed Kelley “the most fun.” Especially noteworthy was their trip to Breckinridge, CO. Where they did many “fun things.”
