A look at one of Centre's outstanding seniors
RELEASED: Dec. 5, 2002
Name: Heather Hayden
Hometown: Henderson, Ky.
Study Abroad: London, Spring 2001
Extracurricular activities: Bonner Leadership Program, Americorps, Writing Center tutor, Magic Mentor, C.A.R.E. public relations chair, Vantage Point editor (literary magazine), junior marshal.
What are you reading outside the classroom? "Right now I'm going through graduate school applications for fun (and for necessity). I've been trying to read Possessions by A.S. Byatt for quite awhile, but have been distracted by the books I'm reading in a children's literature [class]."
What are your plans for the holidays? "For Christmas I'll be returning to Henderson, where my family will gather at my grandmother's house. During the break, I'll be completing graduate-school applications."
Future plans: "Two weeks after graduation, I'm getting married on the steps of Old Centre to Robert Lidowski. Two weeks after that, Robert and I will be moving to his first assignment with the Air Force. Right now, we're requesting Dayton, Ohio, so that we can both attend graduate school. After obtaining a master's in American literature, I'd like to work in the publishing industry."
Quotable: "During my time at Centre, I got to major in the best program at Centre, live independently in Europe, experience all forms of cultural expressions, and meet the person that I'm going to marry. None of those things would have happened if I'd attended another school. Centre is huge among the influences that have shaped who I am and what impact I will have on the world in the future."
