Elizabeth Dunn, who is currently ranked first in her class, is planning on attending the University of Kentucky in the fall with the presidential scholarship that she was awarded. The scholarship will cover all of her tuition and fees. While attending UK, she is going to major in political science and minor in psychology. After she gets her bachelor’s degree she wants to go to law school, and stay at UK. She doesn’t exactly plan on using her law degree to become a lawyer; she hopes to find a different use for it.
“I just want to be able to make a positive difference in my state and community and give back to all those who helped me,” Dunn said.
Like Dunn, student Stephanie Thorpe seems to also have a good grip on her future. Thorpe is going to Morehead State University in the fall; she has also been awarded with a full tuition scholarship. She is going to major in accounting and she also plans to join a sorority and become active in dance and Morehead’s collegiate Future Business Leaders of America. Thorpe should have no difficulty with their FBLA, considering she was Trigg County’s FBLA president for two years.
