Katelyn Kramer is a salutatorian and leader in her promotion
KPRC 2 and American Furniture Warehouse are surprising 20 deserving high school students with scholarships in 2022. All students selected for scholarships were nominated by their high schools.
The fifteenth recipient of a $2,500 scholarship for the year is Katelyn Kramer, who will graduate as a salutatorian at Magnolia West High School in the Magnolia Independent School District.
Kramer is heading to Stanford University where she will pursue a degree in aerospace engineering.
In high school, she demonstrated her leadership skills as captain of the brass band and class secretary. She has also been involved in Varsity Cheer, Track & Field, Mu Alpha Theta and several academic competitions.
She also relaunched the Interact club on her campus.
“I wanted to help beyond my community, so I joined the Interact club. When I first joined the club, it was small and in decline. However, I loved its mission and I don’t didn’t want the club to die, so I became president,” Kramer wrote in his scholarship essay.
“I quickly began to independently plan all volunteer projects and future meetings. As President, I organize and participate in many local and international efforts, such as the “Pennies for Polio” campaign. Through my leadership role at Interact, I have learned the value of hard work and that the ability to help others is a blessing. As president, I was able to transform a simple club into something with a global impact. I value my leadership position immensely because I am able to organize service projects and get involved in something bigger than me.
