10 Students Who Make a Difference: Rosalind Harvey
Rosalind Harvey wants to make sure everyone around her feels included.
A student at Chandler Creek Elementary School in Greer, Rosalind is known for her kindness to others and her willingness to help them succeed. Her parents, Josh and Genia Harvey, encourage her to serve.
“Rosalind is special,” Genia Harvey said. “It doesn’t matter to her – never has – if it’s a boy or a girl, or what ethnic background they have or whether they have money or not. It’s just her. It doesn’t matter to her about clothes. She’s a no frills kind of kid. She’s happy.”
Rosalind volunteers at school block parties that are designed to strengthen the school to home connection. She also helps with the Greer High School girls’ junior varsity soccer team, plays handbells and is a member of her school’s running club, Good News Club and more.
It is important to Rosalind that people are treated fairly. She said she doesn’t want anyone to feel different.
“Some people just don’t get attention,” she said.
Rosalind, who wants to be a zoologist or a hairdresser one day, has made it her mission to reach out to others. She said she and her friends want to make life better for those who are struggling.
“Some kids are just different and they get bullied,” she said. “We try to include everyone.”
