Ramona Convent Secondary School congratulates student-athlete Laurencia Botts on signing her National Letter of Intent with the Cottey College volleyball program. “Laurencia has one of the most impressive resumes we have seen in recent years being involved in over 18 clubs and sports,” Cottey College said. Laurencia shared her accomplishment in an intimate signing ceremony with her family.
Laurencia also shares her athletic talents with the Ramona Tiger swim and basketball teams. She has served as captain for all three sports, won the Coach’s Award and First Team All-Horizon League in 2019. She has also received the Coach’s Award for basketball as well as being recognized as a Scholar-Athlete with Distinction and a three-time Triathlete Award winner. “Playing sports at Ramona has helped me develop good communication and listening skills and has trained me to work well with my teammates,” Laurencia said. “I’ve pushed myself to be not just a team leader but also the coachable athlete I can be.”
Off the court, Laurencia is dedicated to service in the community. She has worked as a SYEP Intern for Kaiser Permanente in the area of HR Disability Management & Consulting. She’s been using the “safer at home time” to create an entirely free educational resource for youth that focuses on environmental sustainability called EnviroGames and polished her entrepreneurial skills by running a beach jewelry business. She also works as a volunteer at St. Therese Carmelite School, her elementary school and her current parish.
Laurencia is looking forward to studying biology at Cottey college and aspires to become a pediatrician because she loves helping others and working with children.
