Katie Perry is an SILG scholarship recipient, receiving a 2020-2021 High School Scholarship. Katie is from La Grande, a graduate of La Grande High School, and would like to take this time to recognize her mom, dad, and siblings (Carter, Landon, Brooke, Tyler) by saying “they are the best family ever!”
Katie is headed to Brigham Young University to earn a bachelor’s degree in Biology and then pursue a doctorate’s degree in radiology followed by a residency. When asked why this particular career path, Katie explained that she would like to be a radiologist because of her love of science, challenging herself, and helping other people.
Katie’s plan for this summer includes working, helping remodel the family house, self-improvement, and outdoor adventures!
What has Katie learned about herself in recent months? “My worth is not measured by my accomplishments because there are things that are much more important! The more I focus on the most important things, like serving others, the happier I am.”
In closing, Katie said “I’m honored and indescribably grateful to be a recipient of this Soroptimist scholarship! I’m so grateful for the generosity that’s empowering me to achieve my goals and make a difference in the world!”
