She has three brothers, Matthew, 19, Andrew, 16, a sophomore at Grant County High School and Justin, 15, a freshman at Grant County High School.

Her class schedule this year includes, pre-calculus, environmental science, chamber choir, English, business principles and an ACT prep course.  

Her favorite class is chamber choir.

“I really like to sing, it is a joy. We do a lot of challenging songs in different languages,” said Goodrich.

Aliesa Mullins, her pre-calculus teacher is listed as her favorite. 

“She has a very bubbly personality and she is fun to be around,” said Goodrich. “She is a great teacher.”

Goodrich is involved with  Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, chamber choir and has been in three musicals at school.

Outside of school she is actively involved with her church, Stonewall First Church of God where she does praise and worship and helps minister the youth. 

When she is not busy with school, Goodrich likes to hang out with friends and go to the movies and the park.

“I really like to play sports like volleyball and badminton,” said Goodrich. 

Goodrich was nominated for the Youth Performance Award by Felicity Spicer, a senior at Grant County High School.

“She is a mature student who has persevered and made a difference in many peers’ lives through her unseen acts of kindness,” said Spicer. “This ‘unsung hero’ deserved the recognition of being a Youth Performance Award Winner.” 

After graduation, Goodrich plans on attending Northern Kentucky University where she will work on her bachelor’s degree in nursing.

“I have a passion for helping others,” said Goodrich.
