It’s hard to believe that this awesome young woman is heading to college next year!
Katie just graduated with the 2020 Blacksburg High School class. She is headed to Christopher Newport College next year where she will begin her studies and play college softball for their team.
I first met Katie when she was 10 years old. No surprise, it was on a softball field! She played with my daughter that year in rec ball and then later in high school. In the interim, I had the awesome fortune of also being her 7th grade advanced math teacher at Blacksburg Middle School. It goes without saying, that was one of my favorite years. I adore Katie.
Katie has a passion for animals. She plans to end up working with them (possibly as a veterinarian) when she is done with her schooling. It’s no surprise considering both of her amazing parents are veterinarians as well! Katie’s sweet dog, Chloe, had to be in some photos!
I mentioned softball earlier and that has been a defining part of Katie’s life. She has actively played rec, school, and travel ball throughout her life. Katie is a phenomenal player too. She is crazy fast in center field and hits bombs when at bat! One of my favorite things to watch was her head first dives as she steals second base!
Anyone who knows Katie would tell you that she is a special person. She has an amazing sense of humor. She will definitely keep you laughing whenever she is around! Katie is also caring and loyal to her friends and family. She is someone you can depend on to support you and help you whenever you need it. Katie is kind. I don’t think there is likely a kinder heart out there. Katie does whatever she can to help animals and humans alike. We need more Katies in this world!
