Drumroll please…the spotlight of the week goes to Kristen Scott. She is a first-year student here at Coe with some awesome and ambitious goals. Kristen is majoring in Elementary Education, but she is doing much more than that. She is also pursuing a K-8 Social Studies endorsement as well as a minor in Sociology. However these goals alone, while impressive, are not what make Kristen such an awesome person. It is the things she plans to do with her education that makes her admirable. Kristen has the “eventual goal to have [her] own nonprofit boarding school in South Sudan”. Wow! How amazing is that? It almost makes me feel like a bad person because I only want to teach here in America, while she wants to reach out to those without any schools at all. That is amazing! But until she ventures to Sudan, she is here at Coe and having a blast. She is a regular with Tuesday Tea and enjoys everything about “every single Sunday night meal” hosted by the Coe Writing Center. (In case you have yet to attend either a Tuesday Tea or Sunday night meal, you should make a point to come. They will start back up in January, so you have time to arrange your schedule accordingly.) As for Kristen, she continues to be a part of Coe while her ambitions continue to reach far beyond; that is was makes Kristen the great person that she has become and the staff spotlight this week.
