High school senior dives into driving herself toward excellence

November 22, 2011

BOTKINS — Botkins High School senior Jenna Christman has approached high school with a solid philosophy. A philosophy, she says, she hopes more students will apply to themselves before they graduate.
“If you want to try something, now is the time to do it,” Christman said. “This is the time when you can try everything and see if you like it. Don’t wait until you are a senior to try something. I’ve seen a lot of people wait until they were seniors and then they try something and find out they enjoyed it. They lose out on a lot.”
