Core Values: Telles keeps our Community thriving

When is comes to being involved in our community, no one comes to thought more than senior Alyssa Telles.

Telles is president of Bear River’s Key Club and heavily involved in many volunteer services around the community.  

“Well when I was a freshman, my friend introduced me to volunteering and said ‘You have to do it, it’s amazing,’ so she really made me want to start. Ever since I started it I have fell in love,” she said. “The best part of volunteering is seeing the smile on someone’s face and it’s crazy how something so little can make someone smile. It’s really rewarding and amazing.”

Senior Jordan Mann described Telles as inspirational and passionate.

“She is really inspiring,” said Mann. “It’s really cool to see how passionate she is about giving back and helping other people and seeing all the work she has been doing for community service.”

Freshman Emily Telles, Alyssa Telles’ sister, said how proud she was of Alyssa’s accomplishments.

“I feel that it is really cool,” she said. “I’m really proud of her. She works really hard. Sometimes she will be in her room and I will walk in and I will try and say hi to her but it’s also really difficult because she has a lot of stuff to do since she is the leader of Key Club. She’s just always working really hard and I’m really proud of her.”

Senior Emilia Frank is proud of her friend.

“It’s really nice because she can help other people figure out what they need to do for their community and senior project,” she said. “She can help guide and start events with community service and it’s just really nice to know that we have someone out there that cares so much about volunteering in the world and people.”

Social Science Teacher and Key Club Advisor Jeff Carrow said Telles has a caring heart.

“Well I think Alyssa’s volunteer service comes from her heart,” he said. “She’s been a part of the Key Club  with me for all four years of her high school career and so it’s just been something a part of her life and a part of who she is as a person. … She just does it because it comes naturally to her and she actually cares about people and she cares about her community and so it comes from who she is as a person.”

Emily Telles said she plans to follow her sister’s footsteps in volunteering.

“I have volunteered with her one time because I’m also in Key Club and had to restock See’s Candies,” said Emily. “She asked me to come and help, so I said ‘yeah’ and it was actually really fun. I like helping out a lot and I hope to do it again in the future.”
