Cora Weisenbach’s future plans include attending the University of Cincinnati to study chemical engineering.

The daughter of Kim Lang and Scott Weisenbach, who has a brother, Luke, 16, decided on her major because “chemistry was one of my favorite classes ... and I have always been pretty good at math, so I combined the two to get a major that is needed in our society and is very functional.”

The Brookville resident says, “I want to progress in my career, and I would also like to encourage young women to consider a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degree because I believe sometimes young women are not always as encouraged to get involved in those careers as young men are.”

Influential educator: Mr. (John) Armbruster has taught me chemistry and physics. I started taking his classes as a sophomore when I took physics. I was in a primarily senior class and had not previously taken any of the classes that most students do before entering the class. He greatly helped me, and I thoroughly enjoyed having him as a teacher for the last three years. His teaching confirmed to me that I wanted to pursue a career in a science-related field.

Favorite activities: Adopt-a-Sis is a club where students are able to eat lunch with one of the Sisters of St. Francis once every other week. I look forward to each meeting with my “sis” because of how much knowledge she has on every subject and how much fun we have over discussing our lives and world events. I also enjoyed National Honor Society because being involved with it meant a commitment to academics and service.

Advice for high school freshmen: Get involved in as much as you can. This is a very worry-free time of your life to enjoy. Live in the moment with your friends and family. Each day is a blessing that you will never get back. Also, if you get a bad grade on a test, life goes on. Do not spend countless hours worried about getting a 100 in every subject and forget to have fun. Now I’m not saying that grades do not matter, because they do, but some things are more important, like being there for your friends and family, cheering your team on at sectionals or whatever is important.
