Rachael Merritt received the VSMF scholarship in 2015 from Bunnell High School. Rachael attends Central Connecticut State University and is entering her senior year. This summer we spoke to her to catch up on everything!
“I have been busy this summer working at Pumpkin Preschool with my wonderful coworkers and children. I am eager to start my senior year at Central Connecticut State University with a 3.84 GPA!
Last semester I completed field work in a middle school English classroom and it was so much fun! When I return to school, I will be completing the last of my field work hours in local middle and high schools as I gear up to begin student teaching. I am also so excited to go back to school and begin work as the Kappa Delta Pi Education Honor Society Vice President! Although it is always tough to go to school away from my family, I am eager to finish this next chapter in continuing Vicki’s legacy.”
We are so proud of Rachael for her outstanding academic achievements and wish her all the best this fall as she continues her field work hours and looks ahead to student teaching!
