Keiana is a multi-sport athlete who can be seen most often cheering on her fellow Cardinal classmates with the cheerleading squad, er favorite sport. She’s been doing it since she was 8 years old. Aside from her athletics, Keiana is a member of the National Honor’s Society and has committed to attend the University of Cincinnatti next fall.

She admittedly always keeps her plate full. So full that despite being busy with school and sports, the future Bearcat has developed quite a hobby: she makes her own clothing.

“I have been sewing and selling clothes since freshman year of high school. But it has picked up in quarantine since I have a lot of free time on my hands,” Keiana said. “I have done a lot of stuff online and sell a bunch of stuff that I think would be cool for other people to buy. People have liked it so I kept doing it and kept having a lot of fun with it. So I’m going to keep doing it until I don’t know when.”

Good Morning Kentucky! My name is Alyssa Andrews, and I’m excited to bring you Central Kentucky’s most accurate forecast independently rated by WeatheRate. I’m the morning meteorologist for Good Morning Kentucky, Good Day Kentucky, and News at Midday. I grew up on the south side of Indianapolis. The Midwest is home for me, so I’m very familiar with Kentucky weather, and enjoy following/forecasting it. Weather is my passion! And I love to constantly be learning. I’m currently in the Geosciences program at Mississippi State University working on a master’s degree in meteorology. I graduated with degrees in Telecommunications and Social Media Journalism from Indiana University-Bloomington in 2015. My broadcast career began as a sideline reporter for Indiana’s Big Ten Network Student crew. From there, I took several sports jobs over the years before changing my focus in journalism. After college, I went into news reporting, covering everything from politics, sports, to weather. I love to have fun while talking weather and life on the morning show, so I hope you’ll wake up with me, Cody Adams, and Erica Bivens weekdays starting at 5 am on ABC 36! I tell the weather like it is, and incorporate as many weird graphics as possible—so get ready to wake up with some laughs and good info!
