JACKSONVILLE, FLA- It is Friday so that means it is time for Student of the Week! This week we are spotlighting Frances Rodriguez an 8th grader at St. Matthews Catholic School in Jacksonville.

She says a good student is someone who wants to learn and she loves coming to school. When she grows up she wants to be a veterinarian. Frances is involved in brain brawl, battle of the books team and a group called Mini-Vinnys.

"Once a month we have a jeans day and students bring in two dollars and a food item and we collect that and take it over to our food pantry to give to people who need help with having food on their table or money to buy supplies they may need," says Frances.

Her principal says Frances is very kind and helpful to the other students. So for her kindness and the want to help others, Frances Rodriguez is our Student of the Week!
