Scholar Athlete of the Week (5/2): Brianna Randolph

May 02, 2017 07:04 PM

Brianna Randolph is an honor roll student athlete that sets the bar high both in the classroom and on the track.

In addition to her 'A' average GPA, the Gates Chili senior is a two-year captain of the Spartans' track and field team. Randolph says wants to use her success to inspire kids who look up to her.

"I know my little brother looks up to me because he wants to do track and he thinks I'm the best for some reason," she says. "For other kids though, I hope they succeed in everything they do, so I want to be like a role model."

It's not just younger kids she inspires. Randolph also tries to use her accomplishments to motivate her peers to be great too.

"Two of my friends said they didn't want to go to college, so I kind of pushed them to at least try MCC. Now they're both accepted and going, so that makes me happy. I think I've helped them a lot from that standpoint."

With just a few weeks left in her high school career, the three- National Junior Olympian has scholarship offers from several schools based on her academic and athletic success. Although she's not sure exactly where she wants to go, she knows her end plan is to help fight crime.

"I'd like to go into criminal justice, so like a crime scene investigator. I would help set things right for people. I just like helping people."

She's Brianna Randolph, the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the Week presented by Monroe Community College and Five Star Bank.
