Senior Jenna Nosek believes Scecina has prepared her to take the next big step in her life: college.
She has narrowed down her top two choices to the University of Pittsburgh or Vanderbilt in Tennessee. “I’ve visited both Vandy and Pitt at least twice, and they feel like home,” said Jenna. 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 a 4.2 GPA and is a President's Academic Excellence Award recipient. She’s a member of the National Honor Society and Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society and is the vice president of the student body. 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.”
