Class of 2019 Top Ten - 6 & 5
Congratulations to the Class of 2019 Top Ten!
As the year comes to a close, we are showcasing the students who, through their hard work and dedication, are graduating at the top of their class.
6: Erin Koch
Acceptances: Baldwin Wallace University, Bowling Green State University, Capital University, University of Cincinnati, and Xavier University
College and Major: Bowling Green State University – Adolescent to Young Adult Integrated Language Arts Education
Total Scholarships Offered: $198,000
Erin chose to attend Bowling Green State University because of the abundant opportunities within their well-developed education program. BGSU also offers the Honors College, which will give her the opportunity to grow academically and personally. “The Honors College provides a smaller school within a bigger school. It is like Roger Bacon but in a larger environment.”
When asked what she will miss the most about Roger Bacon, without question she turned to the performing arts. “I will definitely miss RB3 and the Drama Guild. I was part of RB3 the longest; all four years. And I was able to be a part of The Wiz, the first show in the Fine Arts Center, to this year’s Godspell where we earned nine Cappie nominations.”
5: Christine Hoffmann
Acceptances: Miami University - Oxford, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, and Xavier University
College and Major: Xavier University - Nursing
Total Scholarships Offered: $199,000
Christine continued a family tradition by attending Roger Bacon -- her grandfather, parents, and three older siblings are Spartans. Her younger sister, Clare will be a freshman next year. However, she doesn’t always follow in her family’s footsteps. “At first, I was set on going to UC, since the majority of my family went there, but after touring Xavier I fell in love with the campus and the people. The smaller class sizes and the individualized support that will be available to me all four years was another huge reason I picked XU.”
Nursing sounds like a perfect fit for Christine. She is smart, confident, compassionate, and possesses a smile that is sure to comfort and/or celebrate with her patients.
Christine will miss her friends the most and the memories made during her senior year. One of the highlights was the pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi, Italy. “I loved being able to experience Italy with my friends. It sounds simple, but just sitting around the table and having big family style dinners together was a blast.”
