Kalyee Freiberger


Kalyee Freiberger is known for her incredible volunteer work. The 18-year-old recent graduate from Runnels High School received the 2018 Outstanding High School Volunteer Award at last year’s Greater Baton Rouge State Fair. The award includes a $500 scholarship, which Kalyee will use at Louisiana State University. “I’m looking at pre-med track, either biology or biochemistry major,” Kalyee says.

A member of Woodlawn Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Kalyee says she has always been encouraged to give back to her community. Her service includes food drives, a Hurricane Maria relief project, the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, homeless and at-risk youth outreach, and helping at a nursing home.

“It was just what I wanted to do,” she says. “I’m really active in my school and church, and there is an encouragement from that, too, and to not make it always about myself, but instead about others.”

Kalyee’s volunteer work has taken her to many places, including Vancouver and Chicago, where she helped with camps for kids, and Atlanta where she helped prepare and distribute lunches for people living under interstate overpasses. She also volunteers in many local projects through her church and school.

The daughter of Michael Freiberger and the late Sarah Freiberger, Kalyee is also a musician who likes singing and playing the piano. She’s played tennis and soccer, and she enjoys math and science.

With her giving spirit and dedication to those around her, Kalyee is certainly one amazing kid.
