The 2001 World Championship Musky Classic awarded its Ben Bendrick Scholarship this year to Kaitlian (Katy) Meyer of Presque Isle. Katy is the daughter of Howard and Beth Meyer.
Katy will be attending UW Stout University and will major in Early Childhood Education. After completing her education she wants to be a kindergarten or pre-school teacher. She has a great love for children. She enjoys working and being involved with kids. She believes it is important to a child's educational development to work with kids in their formative years. Katy is very focused and determined.
While Katy did very well in High School she also found herself engaged in many activities benefiting her community. She was a member of the National Honor Society, was a part of the High School Honor Club, taught religious education classes for the 7th and 8th graders at the Catholic Church in Woodruff. She was involved with the Big Brother-Sister program, volunteered at many Presque Isle Chamber functions, collected food for the area Food Pantry and also found time to hold down a job. Oh, and she was also active in the WCMC volunteering at the boat landing registrations.
Katy was also the JV captain for the Pom Pom squad at LUHS and was the starting soccer goalie for the JV squad. She choose to attend several leadership seminars for the School and Church. This past year she was one of 12 members selected for statewide competition in the Visual Arts Classic which is run through the high school art department.
Katy is one of those students that does these because she wants to, it's not for notoriety, glory or awards. It's because she loves to be involved and helping people. She is a young lady that enjoys being a part of life.
It is a real pleasure that the committee of the Ben Bendrick WCMC Scholarship Fund could award this Scholarship to Katy. She represents the integrity that this scholarship is all about.
The Ben Bendrick WCMC Scholarship awards $4,000 to a student that was a graduate of the North Lakeland Elementary School and has graduated from an area high school and is planning on attending college the following fall semester. The student must maintain a 2.5 grade point average the first year and then a 2.75 the following three years.
