A 5th grade student in Spanish Springs is going for a "Triple Crown" of sorts, winning at academics, equestrian and kindness!

This month 11 year old Emily Bennett is News Four's Class Act Award Winner!

Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan surprised Bennett with the award at Spanish Springs Elementary School.

Bennett not only works hard to get good grades, she is an accomplished equestrian rider, winning many ribbons and awards in her 5 years of competing.

She has helped to raise money for Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation through a derby and somehow finds the time to volunteer to pack food boxes with her family at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada!

Teachers say she works hard and motivates others around her to do their best too, always kind and helping others.

Bennett puts in a lot of hard work to be the best equestrian jumper she can, training several hours a week and taking care of the horses she loves so much.

Congratulations to Emily Bennett, News Four's Class Act award winner for the month of February!
