Kentucky homecoming king and queen during halftime ceremonies at the UK-Mississippi State
homecoming game today.
a senior majoring in history at UKs College of Arts and Sciences, is a
Singletary Scholar and a Gaines Fellow.
She also serves as a UK student ambassador, a position that
requires her to participate in a variety of alumni and other events and to tour the state
to urge high school students to consider applying to UK.
I think of myself as a very energetic person, which
is probably why I get involved with different groups at UK. I
have gained leadership experience traveling around the state speaking to high school
students and giving campus tours. I have
utilized the study-abroad programs at UK, and this past summer I lived in Austria.
Reynolds, who was sponsored by Kappa Sigma fraternity, performs
volunteer work with Alzheimers disease patients. She describes the work as a
rewarding experience that has taught me a lot about my grandmothers condition.
a senior majoring in management in the Gatton College of Business and Economics, is a
kicker and three-year starter on UKs football team.
He is president of UKs chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes
(FCA)and a member of UK Athletics' Frank G. Ham Society of Character.
Hanson said, I have tried my best to achieve balance
in my life, which has required me to sacrifice excellence in many areas. For example, I
would love to have a higher GPA or volunteer more; however, I know that I would have to
give up some other activity.
I see this position as another platform I can use,
along with football and FCA, to be a role model and to serve my God and the world,
