Florence teenager chooses school spirit to get through high school

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - If there’s one thing you can say about 16-year-old Sarah Godfrey, it’s that she exudes West Florence High School Knight Pride.

Godfrey said she is in "Beta Club, Pep Club, Tennis Club, Pearls, Spanish Club and Friends of Rachael’s." But the junior has a clear favorite.

“I’d have to say my favorite is Pearls because every year we get in community service hours and we have a dance in December, and yeah, it’s a lot of fun," she said.

Godfrey manages all that along with a 4.2 GPA by focusing.

"I come home and I sit down and just tell myself I need to get everything done and get my homework done," she said.

When Godfrey is not in the books he’s working to break record times doing laps on the swim team. Last year, she helped take the team all the way to State, swimming the 50-meter freestyle in about 26 seconds.

“It’s indescribable, it’s so much fun and I don’t know what I’d do without swim," said the junior who has one more year at West Florence High. When she graduates, she wants to go to college to one day follow in her aunt’s footsteps and become a speech pathologist.
