Top Teen--Meg Massey

Some kids are cheerleaders. Others get great grades. And still others are student leaders. But this week, we found one youngster who's all that and more rolled into one.

Meg Massey is in the eighth grade at Saint James Catholic School. Her philosophy: the busier, the better. "I'm in the Junior National Honors Society," she said. "That's where you perform service for the school and community."

Most recently, Meg's class raised $300 for hurricane victims, but that's just the beginning when it comes to her giving back.

"I'm also on student council," she told us. "This year I'm a representative, but last year, I was the vice president."

Plus she's involved in sports. "I did cheerleading and that just ended a few weeks ago."

Meg's also a ballet student and is in the Saint James Choir.

So, how does an eighth grader do this much and still get good grades? "On mornings when I have two or three tests, I'll wake up between 5:00 and 5:30. Just get everything together. But on a normal morning, I'll wake-up at 6:30."

And her routine seems to be working. Right now, Meg has all A's with her lowest grade being a 94. Just one of the many reasons she's this week's WTOC Top Teen.
