Alexis Bahr

ALEXIS BAHR

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

I am excited to get out of my comfort level because I once read somewhere, things begin where your comfort zone ends. Although I’m scared to leave home and start over, that’s exactly what I’m excited for and there’s no place I’d rather do that than at UW-Platteville. It’s the perfect place for me to start my transition into adulthood. It’s a small town college which is much like where I come from now, and I’m just so excited to see what the future has in store.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Throughout high school I’ve always been active in sports like volleyball and basketball. I love being a part of a team and spending time with my teammates who have all turned into friends. I love being with my friends, along with meeting new friends! This year I have really been buckling down and focusing on my school work to prepare myself for college next year. I’ve been working really hard and found out that Psychology is something that I really enjoy, which was very exciting for me. I’m very proud of all my academic hard work this year and will continue it in the future.

Alexis' Thank You Note

Thank you so much for the Barneveld High School Community Scholarship. It will be used toward my fall semester next year. I am honored to be chosen and I cannot thank you enough. Every dollar will help as I move into my new life at UW-Platteville.

MADISON LAUBE

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

To meet new people, and further my education. I grew up in a very small school, and only had 21 students in my graduating class. This will be a great opportunity for me to meet new people and experience new things.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I like to play sports. I also enjoy watching movies and listening to music. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Madison's Thank You Note

Thank you very much for this scholarship. School is very expensive, so I greatly appreciate any financial assistance I can receive. I will work hard and represent my community in a positive manner. I will put this money to good use in furthering my education. Thanks again!
