It’s a great honor be featured in a BCS Alumni Spotlight. I’m proud of Bellefontaine and though I’m not currently living in our city, I’ve been able to successfully lobby a group of 25 MBA students from Stanford to visit Bellefontaine on a school field trip they will be taking across the Midwest at the end of March. Hopefully their trip will help them see why I find Bellefontaine to be such a special place.

The education gave me a really great foundation to go out into the world and learn more. By challenging myself with classes and being involved in as many activities as I could, I was able to discover what makes me come alive. I still play soccer, for example. It also taught me the vital skills of multitasking and prioritizing. A few teachers I had throughout my career at BCS, like Janet Fulton, Rachel Lang and others, helped me fall in love with reading and writing, and in doing so laid the foundation for my journalism career. Lisette Hiatt started teaching us Spanish in 6th grade, and I’ve used that skill in travels around the world, though I’m still not as good as I’d like to be. Art teachers like Sandy Winter helped me embrace my creativity, another vital part of writing professionally.

Some of my favorite memories of growing up in Bellefontaine include participating in the cross-country and track teams in high school. Both teams had such great camaraderie and I loved the friendships I built on the field – nothing bonds people more than running together! Another great memory I have is attending the Summer Enrichment Academy that Bellefontaine City Schools hosted and getting to participate in crime-solving scenarios, television production, and history lessons.

BMS - Momentum Award
The Momentum Award recognizes schools that have received A’s on every value-added measure included on the 2016 Ohio School Report Card. The value added measure takes into account several student populations including gifted, students with disabilities, the lowest 20% of students and all students. Unlike the state achievements measure which captures a students’ performance at a single point in time, value added measures a students’ growth between two points in time. It’s a measure about students’ growth and progress; it is not about passing one test on one given day.
