Scott Community-Catherine Huck

Published 5/29/2012 in Youth In Excellence

Scott Community High School graduate Catherine Huck hopes she is remembered as a positive influence by her classmates.

"I don't necessarily care about leaving a legacy or legend behind," she wrote in a questionnaire provided to The Telegram. "I just hope my actions inspired them to inspire others in a beneficial way."

The recent graduate, who has attended Scott City schools all her life, finished with a 4.0 cumulative grade-point average. She is a member of the National Honor Society and is also a University of Kansas Honor Scholar.

As a high school student, Huck took part in debate, cross country, track, dance team, drumline, concert band, percussion ensemble, select girls choir, musicals and plays, forensics, 4-H, and district and state choir of the Kansas Music Educators Association.

Her favorite classes, Huck said, were choir and drama.

"Both classes were led by strict instructors who expected the most from their students," Huck wrote.

Both activities, she said, will play a major role in her future career as the she plans to attend Sterling College this fall to major in theater studies. The graduate also plans to minor in Christian ministries.

"Acting is my passion, but I also found extreme joy in a mission trip I took to Uganda last summer," she wrote. "I want to perform on Broadway, start an orphanage, and learn how to kayak. Will any of these happen? We'll have to see, but those are the goals I have for today."

To incoming freshmen, Huck said her most important piece of advice is to be considerate and be yourself.

"Forget about your social status and your Facebook status and just be you," she wrote. "Try every extra curricular activity, work hard, talk to everyone, and be kind."

For her fellow graduates, Huck has similar words of wisdom.

"Don't major in something basing your decision on the amount of your future paycheck. Find something you like, figure out how to make it your career, and execute it with love," she wrote.
