Aspiring Young Leader!
Meet Kaden Robison, Class of 2020. Kaden is a talented student athlete for the Gross Catholic soccer, tennis, and diving teams. He is also a member of the academic decathlon team, 2018 homecoming court, Marianist LIFE (Living in Faith Experience) Core team and is a SALT (Student Advocacy Leadership Team) leader.
Kaden chose to follow in his older sister’s footsteps by attending Gross Catholic because she had such a wonderful high school experience. He found that the small class size provided him with opportunities to be involved in many different activities and sports. “I like the size of the school. It has given me an opportunity to have a different relationship with many people,” says Kaden.
Kaden balances his busy days that include a full school and activity schedule with participation in the Gross Catholic work-study program. He also works part-time as a supervisor at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts – sometimes even fitting a shift in before classes start. Kaden credits his budding leadership skills to his experience with the LIFE and SALT programs at Gross Catholic. Applying his strong leadership skills outside of the classroom resulted in a promotion to the role of supervisor at Krispy Kreme in just his third week on the job.
“Kaden is a true leader and representative for Gross Catholic. He is full of positivity and always has an upbeat attitude,” states Paulette Neuhalfen, principal at Gross Catholic.
Kaden, like many of his fellow Gross Catholic students, has big plans for after graduation. He aspires to attend the University of Chaminade in Hawaii, a Marianist university, where he plans to study marine biology. If plans take him elsewhere, he is also looking into studying real estate and law classes at the University of Boulder. For Kaden, the sky is the limit and there is no telling what this aspiring young leader will achieve!
