Quote from teachers:  “At first glance, Karen is a very typical high school student who is on the tennis team, part of the newspaper staff, varsity cheerleader and serves in class government,” said Kate Henk, School Counselor. “She has a warm personality and it is not unusual to see her talking and laughing with friends. What makes her so extraordinary is her dedication to learn, discover, and succeed, while maintaining humility and grace. She is down to earth, kind, inquisitive, and willing to lend a helping hand to others.” Sarah Rhine, social studies teacher, describes Karen as having “a strong sense of perseverance, mastery and curiosity; she’s not afraid to ask questions and pushes herself to meet academic challenges.”
