Program of Emphasis: Biology
Hometown: Colver, PA
High School: Central Cambria High School
Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College for many reasons. While in high school, I knew many doctors, relatives, teachers and family friends that attended Juniata. Upon asking them they all agreed that Juniata was an excellent school and a great learning and social experience. Also, Juniata has one of the top pre-medicine programs in the country with a staggering admissions rate. I knew that if I attended Juniata the chances of me getting into medical school greatly increased. The small class sizes also drew me into Juniata because I am a hands-on learner and I enjoy the interaction between professors and students. I believe that a good relationship between a professor and student makes for better grades.
Clubs and Organizations: HOSA Spanish Club
Internship: Although I am not participating in my internship until this upcoming summer...I will be interning at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown, PA, for 3 months and will be making rotations with most doctors in the hospital to increase my knowledge in each specialty of medicine.
Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken this year is my Organic Chemistry 2 lab. I love organic chemistry and this year we were able to synthesize our own compounds. I found this as a wonderful opportunity to search for interesting compounds to synthesize and I was able to successfully carry out the synthesis of the drug lidocaine.
Favorite Faculty Member: I believe Dr.Richard Hark has made a difference in my life because of how well mannered he is. He is a very busy person and still makes time for his students when asked, and also he is an extremely kind hearted and generous person. I try to emulate his kind manner because being kind to everyone goes a long way in life, in personal and business matters alike.
I would like to thank the Class of 1974 for providing me with my scholarship. The scholarship means so much to my family and I because my parents are divorced and money is hard to come by at times. I'm extremely glad to receive the opportunity to study biology here at Juniata. I know Juniata is a wonderful school and knowing that I can take part in the learning experience is a truly great thing. If I did not have this financial support, I definitely would not be attending Juniata College and would be attending a public state university. So again, I would like to give my deepest thanks to the Class of 1974 and the money that they donated to allow me to achieve my dreams.
