Sarah Hoseus reports, “I decided psychology was a perfect major for me when I took a psychology course this past fall. I always knew I wanted to be involved in some type of work that consisted of interacting and helping others, and I am fortunate I found the major that suits my interests the most.”
The Xavier University Presidential Scholarship recipient has been accepted in the Honors Program. Her future could include either law school or graduate school for a doctorate in psychology, overseas travel and mission work. The Batesville teen vows, “Community service is a top priority of mine and I will continue my involvement throughout my entire life.”
“One thing I would like to share is a quote that I discovered my freshman year and I continue to apply to my life today: ‘There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.’ Hard work is the key to reaching your dreams. With effort and grit, I am one step closer to achieving my goals I have set before myself.”
The daughter of Nancy and Richard Ricke and David Hoseus and Caretta Price has a brother, Christopher Hoseus, 18.

Top teacher: When I reflect on the past four years, Mr. (Charlie) Zimmerman has influenced me the most. His life lessons and different perspectives introduced me to a new way of thinking not only about my studies, but life as well. He treats every student with respect and continues to support each and every one of us.
Best memories: Performing in all of the Drama Club productions and competing in tennis matches. They both offer two very different types of performance. I get to engage in a competitive sport where my hard work and dedication are seen on the court. On the other hand, I love singing, acting and dancing.
