It's great to see a local Olympic gold medalist profiled! I also love the angle of a fellow Sacred Heart student profiling the alumna, especially a young girl who can look up to KK Clark. It would be great to see more articles like this from the perspective of a young person - it's a great example for local kids.

It's always interesting to read about someone from our community and his/her accomplishments. It's doubly wonderful to have a young student do the interview. Fiona did a great job!

Actually, the interviewer is not from Sacred Heart (Prep), which is a high school. She probably attends St. Joseph's.

Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton Web Link has a lower, middle and high school (Sacred Heart Prep). Fiona attends the Sacred Heart lower school.

Fans of Fiona may want to check out her new column on the Sacred Heart website Web Link "Fridays With Fiona." This week she interviews Dr. Slafter about the Sacred Heart farm.

What a charming article! It's wonderful to see a such an accomplished young woman be featured as an example for little girls like Fiona. I look forward to hearing more interesting stories through "Friday's with Fiona".

How wonderful that an Olympian would come back to the school that supported her as she was developing her skills. Sacred Heart must have provided meaningful values to KK, which inspired her to return to her alma malter and spend time with a current student. I thought the questions were well prepared and provided an opportunity for an interesting exchange between the alumna and the current student.
