Most people are familiar with the adage, “If you want something done, ask a busy person.” If that’s true, it’s hard to find anyone with a more active schedule than Keystone sophomore business major Katie Scheuch. And, it’s equally difficult to meet anyone that can get things done more effectively than Katie.
“I’m involved in so many activities, my days are busy from morning until night, but I enjoy that type of lifestyle,” she says. “At Keystone, there are so many clubs, activities, and sports, there’s something for everyone and people here are always willing to help out when you need it.”
In less than two years on campus, Katie has been a member of Keystone’s NCAA volleyball team, and has been an avid participant with the Student Activities Crew. She also has a work-study job in the Student Activities Office and is vice president of Keystone’s Multi-Cultural Student Affairs Association (MCASA), an organization which promotes diversity on campus.
Support a Paw
Academically, Katie excels as a member of the College’s Honors Program. As part of an Honors Program project for a team-building and leadership class, Katie sold “Support a Paw” wristbands on campus and in the community to raise badly needed funds for the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, located not far from Keystone. In less than three months, Katie raised $1,700 in donations to support the struggling shelter. Her efforts received extensive media coverage from several area newspapers and television stations.
“As part of my requirement for my class, I wanted to undertake a project to benefit a cause that was important to me and that would mean something to the entire community. The Griffin Pond Animal Shelter does tremendous work caring for abandoned animals, helping them to secure safe and loving homes. It was very satisfying to help them in this important mission.”
After graduating from Keystone, Katie hopes to pursue a career in corporate events planning or working in a college student activities office. Whatever she decides, you can be certain she’ll get the job done.
