What are you most exciting about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am really excited for my music classes at UW-Platteville! I am going to be a music education major and I’m really excited to start it. I had a test run lesson with Dr. Ellis on bassoon. I really liked his teaching style and I am very eager to learn how to become a great bassoonist. I am looking forward to meeting the other bassoonists as well. I am very glad I chose UW-Platteville as my future school!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

As mentioned above, I am a music student. I play flute, bassoon, and trumpet. I participate in: solo ensemble, jazz band, chamber ensemble, pep band, marching band, and concert band. I am very active in the art department. I take voice lessons and I am one of the leaders of the art club at my school. Along with art, I am the 2012-2013 Cranberry Festival Queen. I travel throughout the state educating people on cranberries. I do different speeches, demos, and events throughout my year as queen. As for sports, I am a swimmer. I do free styling sprints. I also am the center defender on the soccer team at my school.

Thank you so much for this scholarship! This means so much to me. It is going to help me pay for my college tuition and take some weight off of my parents’ shoulders. I really appreciate the scholarship and I hope you can see how well I do in my college career!
