What did earning the Kristen Julia Drenten Memorial Scholarship mean to you?


"Kristen was an amazing inspiration to all that knew and knew of her.  She had this drive and determination that cannot be forgotten, amongst her ability to be optimistic in every situation.  She was a modern-day Renaissance woman who was smart, active, charming, and health conscious.  Earning the scholarship meant to me that the Scholarship board thought that I was similar to Kristen in some of those ways.  That affirmation along with remembering Kristen throughout college helped me to keep my priorities in line and achieve success."
