Student Spotlight: Jenna Nosek '16

Senior Jenna Nosek, one of this year's salutatorians, will attend Butler University and major in biology. She would like to attend medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon.

Each week the Scecina Student Spotlight introduces the Crusader Community to a current Scecina student who has been a recipient of the President's Academic Excellence Award.

Senior Jenna Nosek believes Scecina has prepared her to take the next big step in her life: college.

In the fall Jenna will attend Butler University and major in biology.

She wants to attend medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon. She’s reached out to the Indy Fuel hockey team about serving as an assistant trainer (she loves hockey!).

Jenna has packed a lifetime of achievement into her high school years at Scecina. She is a four-year President's Academic Excellence Award recipient and a salutatorian for the Class of 2016. She’s a member of National Honor Society and Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society and is the vice president of the student body.

She is vice president of the Student Council and an important part of Scecina's Academic Super Bowl team, participating in the fine arts, English, math, and interdisciplinary categories.

Last year she won magna cum laude honors on the National Latin Exam. She has participated in six sports at Scecina, but this year she is in cross country, swimming and track.

Jenna attended Mount Vernon Middle School and is a parishioner at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Fortville.

Jenna is a big reader whose favorite book is Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” because it “speaks to all ages.”

As a proud Crusader, if she were to choose one passion for which she would lead a crusade, it would be for support for the military. Both of her parents and both grandfathers, as well as many members of her extended family, served terms in the military. “I think there’s camaraderie there. It’s a unifying force.”
