Leo Giesey reports, “Through the Indiana University Honors Program in Foreign Languages, last summer I studied in Oviedo, Spain, where I learned more about the Spanish language and culture. Through this experience, I learned that I loved living an international life. Before my trip, I was fairly certain I wanted to study finance and after completing the program, I decided that I would pair my finance degree with a degree in international business and a minor in Spanish. My goal is to eventually achieve an international business career of some kind.”

Bound for Indiana University, the son of Joe and Flo Giesey (who has a sister, Margot, 20) was selected as a Direct Admit to the Kelley School of Business. The Batesville native and St. Louis School graduate regularly attends Mass at the Sisters of St. Francis Chapel, Oldenburg.

Scholarships: IU Provost’s and Batesville Tool & Die Inc.

Honors: IUHPFL Award of Excellence, Rural Alliance for the Arts Young Artist Showcase drama award for Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol,” as well as numerous class awards, including ACP biology and ACP speech. The Eagle Scout was inducted into Order of the Arrow, an honorary scouting brotherhood.

A leader: Mayor’s Youth Council co-president and Healthy Kids Committee chairperson; Boy Scout Troop 634 scribe, den chief and senior patrol leader; Student Council member; senior class vice president; National Honor Society secretary; and BHS Writing Center peer reviewer

Influential educator: I would like to thank Ms. Katy Tincher for being an exceptional advanced biology teacher. Not only did Ms. Tincher work extremely hard to help the class understand the subject during class time, but she also offered up her own time after school to hold study and review sessions for our college level exams.

Top school activities: I enjoyed participating in Drama Club because it allowed me to express myself through acting. The club’s great directors as well as members made the rehearsals fun and although at times things got a little stressful, the performances were always exceptional in the end! In Kiwanis Student Leadership Academy, I expanded my leadership skills and was able to participate in compelling leadership seminars and team building camps.
