Special Projects Associate
My Role in the Honors College
I help Lindsey Westerfield with the many projects she takes on, from creating and gathering content for brochures and websites, to helping recruit potential Honors College and study abroad students.
I graduated from Reidland High School with Honors in 2008. I’m majoring in news/editorial journalism with a minor in history and planning to graduate in 2012.
Hobbies and Interests
When I’m not in class, at work, or doing something related to one of the two, I can be found reading a historical fiction novel (my favorite), listening to all kinds of music, drawing, crafting, writing or playing soccer. I absolutely love reading, writing and history, and my ultimate goal is to become a novelist.
What Brought me to the HC
I actually have no epic tale of why I decided to join the Honors College; I simply saw the application online my senior year and thought I should maintain my attempts at high-achievement by joining. It was the second-best decision of my college career, and the first was choosing WKU. I honestly can’t imagine what my college experience would be like without the Honors College. Through the HC, I made my closest friends, decided to study abroad at Harlaxton College in England, got a wonderful job that truly makes me look forward to work, and all the while I’ve been surrounded by great staff and a great community of students who have the same ambition as I do.
A Little About Myself
I virtually never have nothing to do, whether it’s class, work, homework, writing for the yearbook, organizing groups or events, or enjoying a meal with friends. I love staying busy, especially with the Honors College. It’s a hectic lifestyle but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
