The Upper Keys Weekly is proud to partner with Coral Shores High School’s faculty and students in choosing “The Student of the Week.” Recipients are chosen on qualifications including academic standing, athletics, outstanding achievements, community involvement, individuality and moral fortitude. We thank our future leaders and CSHS for allowing us to share in a weekly dose of “Hurricane Pride,” and for giving us a glimpse into their world.

NAME: Mackenzie Rohlin

GRADE: 10th

What is something most people don’t know about you? One thing people do not really know about me is that I have only been out of the state of Florida once.

Who is your all-time favorite teacher and why? My all-time favorite teacher would have to be Ms. Robertson because she gives good advice and is super helpful.

What does “a good education” mean to you? To me, getting a good education means having fun while gaining knowledge.

What is the dumbest rule at your school? The best? I feel like the dumbest rule at my school would have to be that we cannot go upstairs during lunch. The best is probably being able to sit with people during lunch.

What is something you know now that you did not know when you were a freshman? Do not procrastinate! Also have fun and always participate in spirit weeks.


What organizations and activities are you involved with at Coral Shores and why are they important to you? I am on the basketball and cross-country teams here, and they are important to me because I love being active. I have gained so many new friends and bonds that will never be broken. I am also involved with the yearbook this year, and I am learning so much about journalism. 

What are your plans after high school? I plan to go to a public university in the state and get my bachelor’s degree. Then I would like to go to law school.

What do you hope to be remembered for at CSHS? My senior quote: “Even though I have no clue what it is going to be yet.”

What is one favorite way to spend your spare time? I do not have a lot of spare time between school, sports and my job, but when I do I like watching TV and spending time with my family.

Will you make the Keys your permanent home? Why or why not? As of right now, I want to get out of the Keys for a little while. I have been here almost my entire life, but I would like to come back eventually.What three things would you like to accomplish before your 10-year reunion? I would like to have traveled a lot, become a lawyer, and learn to surf because that seems fun.
