Hailey Frederick - attending Loras College
Jessica Hundly - attending the University of Pennsylvania
Kala Westbrook - attending James Madison University
Zachary Knapp - attending SUNY Oneonta

I currently reside in Chicago, Illinois and am a daughter to two Chicago Firefighter parents. I am the oldest of three sisters. I attended Regina Dominican High School and graduated with a 4.5 GPA. I am enrolled to attend Loras College in Dubuque, IA. I play lacrosse and intend to continue at Loras College during my college tenure. I plan on double majoring in Mathematics and Education.
My long term future plans are to be a Mathematics teacher and coach sports on either a middle school or high school level.

Jessica Hundly graduated from Douglas County High School in Douglasville, GA as an Honor Graduate, Board Scholar and a Georgia Scholar. In addition, she was also named a National Achievement Scholar and a National Merit Commended Student. Throughout her high school career she has fulfilled leadership roles in school organizations such as Model United Nations and the American Sign Language Club. Jessica has held numerous positions on the yearbook staff including serving as Cop-Editor-in-Chief during her senior year. She has, also, participated in the Spanish National Honor Society and the Reading Bowl. Outside of school, she has been active in her Metro Atlanta community through her engagement with the Model Atlanta Regional Commission Teen Council, the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities Teen Council and as a Georgia representative on the Washington Youth Tour. Jessica will attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2013, where she will pursue studies in Cognitive Science.

My name is Kala Westbrook and I am from Mechanicsville, Virginia. In the fall, I will be a junior at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I am, also, a member of the JMU Cross Country and Track and Field team.

Through my four years in high school, I have learned more than just curriculum. I have learned how to be a better person, how my life choices affect me and how to make lasting relationships. High school has never been easy, but by sticking with advanced mathematics and finishing my high school career, I may have enough college credits to skip through a few courses.
I have taken chorus for six years with the same teacher and it has been nothing short of an amazing experience. I have done four NYSSMA solos, my final of which, being the highest level at a level 6, I received a 100. I received a high enough score to go to Area All State chorus. For five years I pushed through Spanish and now I am fluent. I have been recognized by the school board for my perseverance, and in my own mind I know how important this accomplishment is.
This coming fall, at SUNY Oneonta I will major in Accounting and hope to obtain my CPA.

Hi! My name is Kathryn Whittaker and I am a fourth year Business student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. This summer, I am lucky enough to be working for AT&T as one of their student interns at their corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The weather has been a little different than what I am used to in California, believe me. This upcoming year I will be graduating with a Business degree with a concentration in Human Resources, which is where I hope to end up in the future. For the past three years at Cal Poly, I have worked as a Community Advisor (CA) for University Housing. I enjoy meeting new students and helping them adjust to Cal Poly and college life, in general. It is great way to feel involved in my school. Graduation is just around the corner and I am very grateful for the assistance they BSA Scholarship has provided.

The extracurricular activity I was most passionate about was the soccer program for my high school. Not only did I play for the girl’s team all four years, but I also managed the boy’s team. Through the soccer program, I gained characteristics on how to be a leader and team player. I was recognized for my leadership by my team mates by being named captain for three years and by receiving Athlete of the Season for Leadership for two consecutive years and by the community with receiving First Team All-Conference, First Team All-District and Honorable Mention on the Missouri State Level.
