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

I am looking forward to learning lots of new things during my classes and gaining new experiences at Platteville! I’m excited to be a part of the Women in STEM living learning community and can’t wait to meet other students who share similar interests. I hope to be involved with Engineers Without Borders and the Society of Women Engineers. I am looking forward to running on the cross country and track teams as well.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I consider myself a “crunchy” nature loving person. I enjoy spending time outdoors, being at our family cottage, and taking road trips. I love to be active; I am a runner and an avid bicyclist. I love music and play both the piano and clarinet. I am very dedicated to my school work and I love gaining new knowledge and reading books.

Katherine's Thank You Note

I would like to thank the donors for their generosity in supporting my education. Receiving this scholarship will help me be able to afford my education and will enable to me to pursue my goals and passions for an environmental engineering degree. I am very honored that my dedication and involvement as a student has been recognized. Thank you again!
