arrived as a tenth-grade boarding student with solid goals backed by solid experiences in student leadership, sports, academics, and service.As President of the School, she models commitment, determination, and spirit, with a desire to encourage her fellow students to take advantage of the opportunities and assistance they have here.The highlight of her years was her selection by the faculty to represent St. Margaret's School at the national People of Color Conference, where she learned strategies for working as an advocate for positive change within a diverse community.Kristina
was also selected by Pathways to Success to travel to Nicaragua on a summer service trip to build, paint, and dedicate a school.Denison University
, my alma mater, has awarded Kristina
a merit scholarship.She
hopes to pursue nursing or law, but may also want to return to work at St. Margaret's
before beginning graduate school in order to give back to a community that has given her
so much.We are proud of Kristina
, whether leading announcements, shooting baskets, playing tennis, or singing with Soulful Voices
, a gospel group founded last year with fellow students.
and Kelly have taken very different paths through St. Margaret's
, yet both comment on their growth as individuals, their appreciation for opportunities to pursue passions, and the importance of the skills they have acquired, especially in writing.
I hope that many of you will join us on June 2nd when Kristina
and Kelly and 34 classmates step from the graduation platform into the lives they have been preparing for during their St. Margaret's years.
