SAVANNAH, GA--Karlecia Jackson excels in and out of the classroom. It's Karlecia's positive attitude that makes her shine and a perfect WTOC Top Teen.

This Beach High School senior is no doubt at the top of her class when it comes to grades.

She has a real passion for science and one day hopes to become a bio medical engineer. "Science is a whole world that's open for me. Science is the best thing to get into, biology, physical science and I have a physics class right now," said Karlecia.

And it's not just science. English, social studies, math, no matter what the subject, teachers say Karlecia is top notch.

"She has all the skills she knows how to learn and she really really wants to learn," said teacher Molly Hannas.

And she always has a big smile on her face. "She's always has a great day," said Hannas.

So how does she get it all done and still have time after school to tutor younger students?

"It's a game of juggling to make sure you have everything in one hand, as soon as you get one thing done you have to make sure the next thing is done," said Karlecia.

Making her a role model. "They really look up to her for her creativity, ability to express herself and ability to get along with everyone else," said Hannas.
