This week I would like to put a spotlight on Kaicey Weber, the recipient of the 2014 Roy H. Yelton Scholarship. Every year when scholarship applications start to roll in we look for students with a strong academic history, a great spirit and meaningful goals. As an all-around stand up student, Kaicey certainly fit the bill and we couldn’t be more excited to contribute to her future.
Throughout her high school career Kaicey proved that she was both smart and passionate, staying actively involved in the National Honor Society and Student Goverment. Along with making her mark inside of the classroom, she has also placed a high priority on giving back to her surrounding community. She spends countless hours volunteering at her church and loves spending time with kids. When we asked Kaicey what she had in common with Mr. Yelton she said, “I try my best to be caring and empathetic to everyone around me.”
As a recent graduate of Lakota East, this fall Kaicey is off to Miami University to study Psychology and Chemistry. For many high school graduates heading off to college is a big enough bite to swallow, but for Kaicey, it doesn’t stop there. Following her undergraduate program she plans to apply to graduate school to become a Childs Advocate Lawyer or to pursue a career in Pediatric Medicine.
Congratulations Kaicey! Everyone at Yelton’s is rooting for you.
