Riley Keen

Cape Henlopen High School

Nomination Statement

“Riley is the daughter of Tammy and Todd Keen of Lewes. She is a wonderful student, athlete, and person. She has maintained above a 4.0 while taking one of the most challenging schedules available. She has taken dual enrollment and Advanced Placement courses in every core subject area and continues to excel. She has participated in numerous community service projects including a breast cancer awareness walk, polar bear plunge, and coaching younger players in lacrosse and field hockey. Riley has been a member of state championship teams in field hockey and lacrosse. She plans to major in biochemistry in college.”

“I am inspired by competition. I use others to push myself toward success. Without having competition, I would not push myself nearly as hard. I encourage myself to learn from others and develop my own strengths. Working hard and competing with others to succeed is much more rewarding than just being handed something.”
