Program of Emphasis: Studio Art
Hometown: Shirleysburg, PA
High School: Mount Union Area Senior HS
Why I chose to attend Juniata: I have called Huntingdon County home since childhood, so coming to Juniata was a natural fit. Juniata's reputation and welcoming atmosphere also made this choice an easy one to make.
Clubs and Organizations: Juniata College Cycling Association (formerly Bike JC) - active member since 2011 Habitat for Humanity - active member this year Mud Junkies - current Treasurer, I have led two meetings that focused on making slab cups and glazing the bisqued piece. I also travel to NCECA and participate in the planning of Empty Bowls.
Internship: During the summer of 2013 I worked as a Pottery/Ceramics Activity Counselor at Grier Summer in Tyrone, PA. I planned a three-week curriculum for the ceramics activity program and taught the curriculum to two groups of campers.
Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken this year has been my capstone course in clay. Having the opportunity to explore why I work in clay has been very self-fulfilling. I have been using this time to learn about the way I express myself through my art and how I want my audience to perceive the pieces I make. This course has also allowed me to grow my technical skills and general knowledge base about the ceramics community.
Favorite Faculty Member: Professor Bethany Benson has been a wonderful mentor. She has invested time in my professional aspirations and pushes me to succeed. Abbey Baird, Director of Community Service and Service-Learning, has also changed my life. Because of working in her office I have become more aware of the difference service has made in my life and hope to continue my service efforts.
Honors Received: Juniata College Bonner Leader Program - Spring 2011 Cohort
