What did earning the Kristen Julia Drenten Memorial Scholarship mean to you?
"I’ve struggled with health issues all my life. This has made many things in life a challenge for me that came easily to my friends. Physically I couldn’t keep up with them, and I had to work hard academically due to all the school I missed. People didn’t always understand what it took for me to keep up. It meant so much to me that I earned this scholarship because it meant someone acknowledged and understood all I had to do to get here."
