Keturah Orji on School

Keturah Orji stands as one of Mount Olive’s standout alumni. She is a two time Olympian, taking part in the 2016 and 2020 Olympics for the triple-jump. Yet, what may be Keturah's greatest characteristic is her ability to be a role model by setting a good example for her peers and for students.

One of her former teachers, Mr. Ferry, had Keturah in his Ancient Civilizations class during her Sophomore year and remembers her as, “an incredible student, an even better person, and obviously an even better athlete.” During the Spring semester, she was breaking school records everyday and Mr. Ferry or one of his seniors (Ancient Civilizations is predominantly taken by Seniors,) would stand to recognize her. “Keturah would just blush. She was just so polite and so shy, but she was a great kid. Yet, she also had a really good sense of humor and she was smart. As good of an athlete she is, she is an even better person” says Mr. Ferry. 

Mrs. Riley-Lepo also had Keturah as a student in her English II class. Mrs. Riley-Lepo remembers that Keturah was also quiet in class, yet she had, “so much intellectual potential and always took her school work very seriously. She was a pleasure to teach.”

One of the most challenging aspects of school for students is balancing their time and staying efficient in both finishing assignments/homework with other responsibilities. For Keturah, it was key that found a way to balance her assignments with her training. She says she would “prioritize what needed to be done first and make sure to start with those assignments” Keturah would not waste her free time either: whether it was between classes, before classes, or traveling to competitions, she would get a jump start on her assignments. She notes, “Being proactive is key.”

When asked about a message she has for students to@day, she says to always be yourself because “not everyone will like you and that’s okay.” She also mentions to, “try as many new hobbies/classes/interests as you can while you’re still young. We are all so talented in so many areas and sometimes we think our lives have to go a certain way, but if you explore various interests you never know what passions you can discover.”

She did not forget her roots either. In September she came back to Mount Olive to deliver a message to the district teachers as they prepared for the school year. She mentions how it is always, “nice to see my previous teachers and remember how far I have come and how much I have grown into the person I am today” Mr. Ferry was able to spend some time catching up with his former student. He remarks that she told him how to “get the magnets and the t-shirts with Keturah on them.”

Today, she continues to train, while also spreading positive messages about self-improvement and financial advice on her instagram (@ktorr1), Twitter (@keturahorji), as well as on her website (www.keturahorji.com). Keturah illustrates what it takes to be a great athlete, student, and most importantly, a great person.
