President Tim Rayne Recognizing Kristen Andes
Principal Jim Conley introduced Kristen as a highly deserving student of recognition. Kristen is a leader, athlete and scholar who plans to attend college next year.
Kristen attended Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) in her sophomore year because she wanted to be more of a leader in the future. She found the experience helped a great deal to develop her latent leadership skills. She was already active in a number of activities, for example, she was a mentor to incoming ninth graders, and wanted to take a broader role.
In her Junior year Kristen started her leadership activities by becoming part of the leadership counsel that planned the ninth graders Introduction to High School Day. She has gone on to the Board of the National Honor Society, where she has worked to get students involved in community service. Currently she is planning an evening of various projects to get them started this year.
On Martin Luther King Day she worked at the Chester County Adult Care Center cleaning and interacting with the adults. Kristen is one of the organizers of the Run for Our Sons event.
In addition to these service activities Kristen runs track and plays field hockey. She pointed out the Field Hockey team is rated number 6 nationally. Clearly she is a great athlete!
Next year Kristen plans to start studying business at either Penn State, University of Maryland, University of Delaware or one of several other schools.
