To the Carlin Nalley Foundation,
Thank you so much for the scholarship, you relieved much stress from my future educational expenses.
I will attend Illinois State University and I plan on pursuing a major in Middle Level Education with endorsements in Math and Science (and English Language Learners if time allows). Being on the Lionettes Dance Team was the most influential experience that Lisle High School brought to me. Being a part of this team allowed me to share my passion for dance with my teammates and demonstrate my school pride. This team taught me how to manage my time, teach others, and provided many life lessons - like the importance of hard work, good sportsmanship, and teamwork- and gave me the experiences of a lifetime: competing at IHSA State (4X) and UDA Nationals (2X). It is no doubt that without the experience of being on the Lionettes, I would be a completely different person, I would have missed out on the lessons and experiences. I managed to find balance in life at an early age and will forever be thankful for the time I spent on the team.
To the alumni:
It is truly an honor to be selected as the recipient of the 2019 Ron Logeman Educational Leadership Award. All my life, I knew that I was meant to teach future generations, as I have a passion for learning and helping others learn. I aspire to be the best possible role model for my future students. Thanks to you, I am able to focus more time on my education, learn new concepts and ideologies, which will then help my future students succeed in life. Lisle is truly one of the best places to grow up!
I cannot express enough gratitude.

University of Kansas Class of 2022
1. I will attend the University of Kansas in the fall. I have already gone through orientation and am registered for classes, including Introduction to Teaching!
2. I plan on studying Secondary Education and majoring in English.
3. I have always wanted to be a teacher, I just was not sure what kind. Mr. Sally, my freshman and sophomore year English teacher not only opened my eyes to teaching English, but also showed me the type of teacher I would like to become.
4. I would really like to thank the alumni for this award and scholarship. I hope to make you proud! Hopefully I will be back at Lisle High School in four years to join the other alumni who teach there so I can give back to the school that gave me so much!
