(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

Kaitlyn Kerr, daughter of Gary and Rhonda Kerr, is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School and a member of the East Franklin Flyers 4-H Club.  Some of her favorite projects include basketry, goats, and sheep.   When asked about her favorite 4-H memory, she answered, “Every year my friends and I had a living room set up in the sheep barn.  We would set up a tent that had lights around it and we would relax there throughout the week.”  Her greatest accomplishment in 4-H was winning the 2011 Grand Champion Dairy Wether, which was in memory of her brother Kyle Kerr.  Aside from 4-H, Kaitlyn is involved in basketball and soccer.  She also likes to spend time with family and friends.  Her other achievements include receiving the 2009-2010 Players Choice Award for basketball and the 2011-2012 Toughness Award for soccer.  When asked who inspires her, she replied, “My parents for supporting me in everything I do and my older brother for showing me that hard work does pay off.”  In the future, Kaitlyn plans to attend Hanover College and major in exercise science.

Caroline Koester, daughter of Jeff and Dianna Koester, is a 2012 graduate of Franklin County High School and a member of the Blooming Grove Tigers 4-H Club.  Of all of the projects she has taken, photography, sewing, and the fashion revue are her favorites.  Caroline’s achievements in 4-H include Grand Champion sewing, Grand Champion fashion revue, Indiana State Fair finalist in fashion revue, and receiving many division champions and state fair entries for her projects.  She recalls her favorite 4-H memory as “reigning over the 2011 Franklin County 4-H Fair as Queen!”  When she has free time, Caroline enjoys playing basketball, running track, taking pictures, traveling, attending Indianapolis Colts games, and boating.  In school, she has received several honors including highest honors, Chemistry Student of the Year, English Student of the Year, United Way, and being a member of National Honor Society and Student Council Executive Board.  When asked who inspires her, she answered, “As fair queen, I was inspired by each and every individual 4-H member.  Their hard work and dedication put into each project created enthusiasm and an awarding experience not only for them, but for everyone around them.”  Caroline plans to attend Butler University in the fall to pursue a career in pharmacy.  She hopes to become a pharmacist and perform research, as well as bring new drugs to the market.
