Kearns was also a volleyball coach at the school. Her family described her as "a vibrant and beautiful spirit.

According to the Sutton Middle School Facebook page, Kearns annually spearheaded a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign at the school and encouraged children to raise money for Ronald McDonald House charities by collecting pop tabs.
