For most of the day, Bainville High School senior Kendra Romo is a student. But she takes on another role as a paraprofessional during her time at the school.

Romo helps with all elementary levels but mainly with kindergarten and second-grade students.

“I love working with kids,” Romo said.

Her duties include teaching the sound of letters to kindergartners and reading to second-graders.

Romo, who plans on attending Minot State University to study elementary education, says Rayna Jorgenson has been a great mentor to her.

“She’s taught me a lot about being a paraprofessional,” Romo explained.

School activities for her have included Business Professionals of America, FFA, volleyball, basketball and track.

She has qualified for the BPA state conference in both global marketing and parliamentary procedures.

Her strength in FFA is always with parliamentary procedures. She explained what she learned in FFA as being beneficial in the BPA competition.

As far as sports, volleyball is her personal favorite.

“I’ve always had a great connection in the sport with my coaches and teammates,” Romo explained.

She has played volleyball for eight years. Highlights have included beating Scobey this past season.

Romo was a key contributor for the volleyball squad as a steady setter despite the challenges of the position.

“It can be tough to be a setter,” Romo laughed. “You need to find the connection with the hitters.”

She said her teammates, however, rarely complained about a sub-par set. “It was mainly myself,” Romo added.

After being a consistent athlete in the school’s basketball and track programs throughout the years, she might try a different sport this spring. She is planning to golf for the Bulldogs.

“I hear you can play it your whole life,” Romo said of golf.

She is glad that she attended school in Bainville and thankful for her classmates.

“We’re all really close friends,” Romo said. “Most of us have been here since kindergarten. We’ve been close-knit our entire lives.”
