Molly O’Boyle

Tremper High School




: Don and Beth O’Boyle, Pleasant Prairie

Favorite class

: AP Physics

Most influential teacher

: Charles Krey, social studies

“Coach Krey was my teacher in 8th grade, as well as my track coach during all three years of middle school and last two years of high school. Coach Krey taught dedication in the classroom and on the track, but was always able to make class fun and put a smile on his students’ faces. He challenged me to better myself as a student and athlete. I was so lucky to have Coach Krey as a guide during middle school and I am grateful that I get to finish high school with him as my coach again.”

Most memorable high school moment

: “My junior year I had state competitions for cheerleading and gymnastics on back-to-back weekends. On the first weekend, my cheer team (Tremper varsity competition team) won the D1 medium state championship. On the second weekend, my gymnastics team (Kenosha Combined Gymnastics) won second place in the team competition at the WIAA state gymnastics meet, and I won three state titles during the individual competition. Both weekends were so exciting and I was very lucky to spend them with so many great teammates.”

Lifetime goal

: “I hope to work my way up as an athletic trainer starting at the high school/collegiate level. My ultimate goal is be the AT for a professional sports team or at an Olympic training center. I have grown up very involved in athletics, and I know that I will not stay in sports for the rest of my life, so it is my goal to be able to help other athletes through their seasons and injuries. I want to work with athletes of all levels, helping them to remain healthy and reach their highest potential.”

Role model

: My parents

“My mom and dad are two of the most encouraging and caring people that I know. They support my brother and me in everything that we do, and lend their help whenever and wherever it is needed. They put everyone else’s needs above their own without complaint and I am so thankful to have been raised by two such hard-working people. My parents inspire me everyday and I hope that someday I will be able to show my children the love and support that my parents show me.”
