Kristen's Story

My passion is working hard.

I always knew I had speed from school field days and small runs with my family. So, one summer I attended camp and we did relay races my team wasn't very good but then I got tagged. I realized that I had a chance to catch up so I kept running till I got to the end and it was time to come back. Later that day my counselor told my mom about the race and said I should join track because I was fast. I learned that if I worked hard at practice then the meets wouldn't be so hard.

I believe this program will help me explore my passion because I want to be able to help others like my coaches have helped me - but in the medical field. I want to have the chance to make someone's life better. I also love working with others who are in need. I would love to be a part of this program and hope to continue towards becoming a future anesthesiologist.

A Note from Mr. Fussiner, Kristen's Teacher

"Kristen is a highly engaged student, and certainly one of the most disciplined learners in our school. She is the sort of student that is most deserving of this and other extracurricular programs; indeed, she is the sort of student that one seeks out special programs for. She is ready for additional challenges and she will be successful with these. She deserves this and other opportunities."

Excited to attend Centenary summer program

I can't wait to attend this program!! I am glad my teacher told me about this, and gave me the opportunity to be a part of this amazing experience. I appreciate and honor the donations I received because it shows that people also want what's best for me. I can't wait till I am able to do the same for many more. I will use this program to better me as a person, by not only sharing my ideas, but gaining more information from others. I am pleased to be a part of this, and excited to attend this summer.

Success! Mr. Fussiner helped Kristen raise $995
