Thank You Letters

Marissa Dougherty

Program of Emphasis: Early Childhood and Special Education

Hometown: Plains, PA

High School: Holy Redeemer High School

Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College because I liked that it was a small school with a close-knit community. Coming from a small high school and growing up in a small town, I like the fact that I know a good majority of both students and professors on campus.

Clubs and Organizations: Cheerleading Eagle Ambassadors

Internship: PA Lions Beacon Lodge Camp Counselor - Summer 2013

Most Interesting Class: Nutrition- I found this class the most interesting because it made me realize how important a healthy diet is to overall well-being. In addition, I liked learning about foods that dual as medicines and can help fight certain diseases or prevent health problems.

Favorite Faculty Member: Coach Michael Pennington has recently become the head cheerleading coach of the Juniata Cheerleaders and his positive influence and coaching commitment has changed the cheerleading program tremendously, and I am excited to see how the program will advance in the years to come.

Honors Received: NCLS
