She was an HSEHS two sport, All State student- athlete in soccer and track. She was an active member of the FFA program and a member of National Honor Society. She was extremely passionate about her family, friends, teammates, teachers and coaches, and took great pride in being a Royal!

Workers are asked to work up to an 8 hour day (8:00am-4:00pm) in the HSE schools community for a minimum $25.00 donation per worker. All proceeds go toward the scholarship.
