Our Outstanding Senior from East Gaston High School
is Allison Roberts.
Allison Roberts knows what it’s like to keep a long-term project going. Two years ago, she placed tiny 3-D printer-made bunnies around her art teacher’s classroom. This became a running joke as the bunnies turned into tiny Star Wars Yoda figurines that were hidden all over the campus in the most inconspicuous places. While no one knew who the creator was (until now), Allison said she saw the smiles it brought to the faces of other students and wanted to help spread joy to her classmates. What started out as a joke became a project that brought people together and provided smiles and happiness for her peers. After graduation, Allison will attend Central Piedmont Community College to earn her associate degree. She plans to further her education and wants to pursue a career in biology or TV broadcasting.
