NEWS: Kalafus Makes Impact On Law Community
By Ismar Junuzovic – Entertainment Editor
Senior Cori Kalafus has made her mark on Jonathan Law community.
Kalafus is a hard-working member of the student body. Her dedication to her grades and to Law athletics are only a few of the things that make her a valuable member of the senior class.
This year, Kalafus is a host of Eagle Eye News, Law’s morning news show, and an editor of the yearbook.
“Cori is such an enthusiastic, hard-working kid,” Broadcast Journalism teacher Mr. Kulenych said. “She No matter what she does, she always gives it her all and her love for Law is unmatched.”
Senior year brings about many challenges for all seniors, but Kalafus has decided to stay focused and to constantly be challenging herself in and out of the classroom.
“I decided to demand more out of myself by taking more challenging classes this year,” Kalafus said. “I began my college research early by doing constant research on all schools and how they fit to my interests by always going to College & Career and using the Common App.”
Kalafus is constantly working hard in school and is also a three-sport athlete. She was named captain for all three sports she participates in – soccer, indoor track, and outdoor track.
Where she truly shines and feels most at home, though, is on the football field during Powder Puff season. This year she helped lead the Lady Lawmen to a 13-0 victory over Foran. Her seven flags on defense were tied for the most on the team.
“(Winning Powder Puff) was one of the best feelings I had out of my four years at Law.” Kalafus said.
Kalafus, like many students, has a busy schedule outside of school but she always finds time to come and support Law by volunteering for events such as fundraisers or supporting Law’s sports teams in the student section.
“Cori is a hard worker when it comes to anything she does,” senior Justine Bannon said. “Whether it’s with sports, academics, or even friendship she does everything the absolute best that she can.”
Kalafus’ outgoing personality and positive attitude towards any situation show that she is always willing to do whatever she can for others.
“I think Cori is definitely loved at Law because she makes friends so quickly with how open and kind she is with everyone,” senior Medo Radoncic said. “She is one of my best friends for sure.”
Kalafus’ teachers also speak highly of her work ethic and enthusiasm for life.
“She is one of the most honest and hard-working students I have ever seen and I truly have been amazed watching her mature through her four years,” Mr. Sweeney said.
Over the past four years, Kalafus has had a tremendous impact on the Law community and her influence as a student and leader is only growing.
