” Just because some people are fueled by drama doesn’t mean you have to attend the performance.” -Cheryl Richardson

Kristen Henley is attending Mansfield University as a biology major. She plans to participate in multiple different clubs to help really get the whole college experience.

During high school, she has participated in Leo Club, band, National Honor Society (NHS), theatre, and is the president of the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club.

When asked about how she anticipated the next few years to go compared to high school, she answered with, “I think the next few years will be challenging, yet rewarding.”

Advice she would give to underclassmen would be to always set goals and work hard to follow them.

Her dream job would be to be a pediatrician.  Kristen has a very bright future ahead of her, and it will be very exciting to see where it takes her.
