Senior Laurel Robinson could read music before she could read books. Numbers and colors also came easily to her. Laurel’s parents decided to enroll her at Roeper in the 1st grade where she excelled in both the arts and academics. “The Lower School made me so much of who I am,” says Laurel. “There were so many special connections and always a lot of help from the teachers.” When Laurel isn’t studying, you’ll find her playing the violin with the DSO Civic Orchestra or creating small works of art for others to enjoy. Some of her magnificent artwork pieces have already been displayed in a couple of Detroit galleries. Laurel owns her own Etsy jewelry shop online and recently directed a fashion segment on Fox 2 News. She’s attending Michigan State University in the fall with plans to major in Graphic Design and minor in Communications. If she’s not an Art Therapist after graduation, Laurel wants to open up her own cafe, an art gallery or a vintage clothing store. She’s a #RoeperKid.
