Impact Student: Kayla Jensen


Through her various involvement throughout the school and resourcefulness Kayla Jensen has left her mark on Albert Lea High School. Jensen has been involved with soccer, National Honors Society, President of Roar, Vice President of Orchestra council and jazz band. As well as being Albert Lea high school’s Quizlet Queen. Jensen makes many different quizlets for students to use through the closed ALHS Flashcard Database Facebook group, which is consisted of 195 members as of printing.
Senior Natalie Day has known Jensen since seventh grade. She says Jenson’s positive attitude is contagious and inviting.
“Every time I see her she is always smiling and happy,” Day said. “She always has something good to say and she’s quizlet queen so she always has everything ready for tests.”
Haney test week is considered to be one of the most stressful weeks of the quarter, but Albert Lea High School’s Quizlet Queen makes it a little bit better. Besides Haney’s Government class, ALHS Flashcard Database consists of quizlets for CIS Humanities, AP Biology and it is where most people get the weekly current event faces for Haney’s classes.
Social studies teacher Jim Haney thinks Jensen is a brave soul for being the Quizlet Queen.
“Hopefully she gets compensated to do that,” Haney said. “It is a nice thing she is doing.”
Senior Calvin Peterson believes Jensen has saved him from failing and she is the only reason he is passing Haney’s Government class.
“Every grade needs someone like that because she actually does help everyone,” Peterson said.
Jensen says being Quizlet Queen takes a lot of work but she likes all the thanks she gets. She thanks her mother for being her inspiration to work hard.
“It’s pretty nice to know that people actually use them and I can help them out,” Jensen said. “I’m glad that I made a difference in people’s lives.”
Jenson being a leader at Albert Lea high school will continue to impact lives joining the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) program for the Army this fall. She will be attending the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse for a major in Exercise Science and hopes to be an officer in the Army.
