Scholarship Recipient - Olivia Herman
My name is Olivia Herman and I will be attending Barton County Community College. I plan to complete my general education courses at Barton and then move on to a university where I plan to get my Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s in Creative Writing.
As I move forward to this next stage in my life, I will never forget the countless lessons I have learned from my parents and my peers. Through activities like Track, Cross Country, KAYs, and FCCLA I have gained a better understanding of working with others and giving my best to any and every roadblock that comes my way. Growing up on a farm has also helped shape who I am. My parents, along with lessons that can only be learned on a farm, have shown me through hard work comes great reward. Nothing feels better than after a long day of working on the farm, to sit on the back porch and reflect on the fruits of your labors. I am so excited to be able to put this knowledge to use in college and in my future career.
