Krishan said,"I was "so proud" to receive the nomination and appreciative of Coach Ramsey for choosing me to nominate. Being a freshman and lettering was a lot for me to take in. I was shocked to letter my first year in high school. I was not that good. But, I learned alot about leadership and hustle from my coaches. Like Coach Gibbs saying little things here and there throughout the game. It is the best thing for a young player like me and my teammates. I want to be better. Having positive people around is great. I appreciate my trainer Coach Clyde Harvey. This nomination is for all those that support young women and those of color like me. I didn't think going to Lincoln Prep was my only chance to be great. Southeast is a great place to be great at too. Shoutout to my principal Dr. Chambers. Let's Go Lady Knights!"

This inspiring event recognizes student-athletes, coaches, businesses and teams that exemplify the Five Core Values of the NAIA's Champions of Character program. This year's 2022 KC Metro Champions of Character High School Student-Athlete of Character (9th) Luncheon will be held at the Kansas CIty Marriott Downtown Muehlebach Tower.
