Whats an aspect of your Centre experience thats made it special? I come from a long line of Centre alumni. Both my parents came to Centre. My dads parents were both at Centre and most of his brothers, sisters and their spouses also attended Centre. So they added to the trend of [Centre alumni] marrying Centre alumni.
Familys very important to me, but they didnt push me to attend Centre. They were, however, really excited about my decision. Homecoming is really interesting because every time I turn around theres someone I know. Deciding who gets graduation tickets is going to be difficult this year because my family members are always excited about coming back to campus.
What did you think about being named homecoming queen? I was very honored to be nominated by my senior classmates and to be a member of the court. It was great to win. It was an honor to be selected by the campus, and it made the rest of the weekend really fun. My aunt was homecoming queen in 1974, and she was there to see me get crowned. She was beside herself.
Summer plans: "I have some friends who graduated last year from Centre and are living in Charleston, S.C., and Washington, D.C. A few friends and I are hoping to visit them. I also have an aunt in San Diego whom I hope to visit as well.
Future plans: Im keeping my options open. I was accepted to graduate school at the University of Louisville for exercise physiology, but have decided to take a year off school and do some career sampling and internship work. Im interested in working as a volunteer coordinator or event planner for the Derby Festival.
What others say about Amy: I love my job at Centre because I get to work with dynamic students like Amy who give unselfishly of themselves and positively impact all those they come in contact with. She gets involved where she sees a need and balances all of her activities. Patrick Noltemeyer, director of Greek life at Centre
Quotable: One of the most important things about the Centre College experience is to take part in everything they offernot that its possible to do everything. You have to take care of your academics, but its good to take classes outside your major. Everyone should study abroad and be involved in extracurricular activities. The most important thing would be to surround yourself with the people who are a part of this institutionthe faculty, staff and studentsand be in their lives. Ive developed many wonderful relationships that will carry me through my life.
