2019 Katie Udelhofen-Clark Scholarship Recipient
The 2019 Katie Udelhofen-Clark scholarship was awarded to Verona High School senior Makaya King. Although we were not able to attend the awards program to present her scholarship that evening we did meet Makaya a few weeks later at the high school. She seems as warm and caring as her application described.
Makaya understands the value of hard work, setting goals and helping others.
She is an honor student who finds time to work part time as a trainer at a local fitness center and volunteer at Verona Area Community Theater. For the past 4 years she has helped children thrive through their involvement with VACT and has witnessed first-hand the positive impact theater has on children both on and off the stage.
The theater and helping others were two aspects of Katie's life that were especially important to her. As we read Makaya's heartfelt essay we knew that she was the perfect 2019 scholarship choice and that Katie would approve.
Makaya will be attending Michigan State this fall.
