Carla Robinson, daughter of Deb Robinson and Joe Robinson, was born July 26, 1994 at St. Luke’s Hospital.
Carla has one sibling, an older sister Coreen.
Carla is sometimes called Carl, Carlar, or Carleen by her family and friends.
Carla’s favorite sport is basketball; her favorite movie is The Usual Suspects; her favorite musicians are Eric Church, Mumford & Sons, and Rascal Flatts; and her favorite saying is, “Unless people like you care a whole awful lot, things aren’t going to get better, they’re not.”
When “Carl” was younger, she imagined herself as a veterinarian.
“Carlar’s” most memorable moment is the week that she spent at Girls’ State last summer.
“Carleen’s” favorite pastimes are reading and playing with or showing her dog Prince.
Carla’s favorite childhod memory is playing games with her sister.
The person who has inspired Carla the most is her mom because she taught her to never give up and that sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself.
While in high school, “Carl” has been involved in Large Group Speech, Individual Event Speech, and Lakeside Lab.
“Carleen’s” most embarassing moment was how bad she was at walking upstream in Dugout Creek. She and Kristen Foley were attempting to catch fish during fish population at Lakeside in the spring of her junior year.
“Carlar’s” greatest achievement so far is showing her dog Prince at the Iowa State Fair. They won Reserve Champion in their obedience class of 35 competitors.
If Carla could give any advice to underclassmen, it would be, “Work hard, have fun, and do everything that you can.”
If “Carl” could relive one moment of her life, it would be the week that she spent at Girls’ State.
What “Carleen” likes the most about high school is all of the people that she’s met and opportunites that she’s had.
Carla’s biggest regret about high school is not spending more time with her sister when they were in high school together.
“Carl’s’’ favorite excuse for not turning in her homework is, “I forgot about it.” Her favorite excuse for being tardy is, “I thought that I had more time to get to class.”
While in high school Carla’s favorite class has been any class with Mrs. MaryJane Tapper because she loves to read.
After high school, Carla plans to attend Wayne State College and study History Education.
