October Student of the Month

FREDONIA, N.Y. — October — Kaitlyn Piatek, of Kenmore, N.Y., has been named Student of the Month for October by Residence Life.  Kaitlyn was nominated for this award by Mrs. Kathy Forster, Director of Residence Life, for her contributions to the honors program, and volunteer activities.

“Kaitlyn lived in the Honor's House in Hemingway Hall for both her freshman and sophomore years and was involved in many hall council activities (treasurer & President), and honor's program activities. This year she lives in the Townhouses and still continues to mentor new Honor's program students as well as plans programs for the Honor's program,” says Mrs. Forster.

Kaitlyn is very involved in campus and participates in Teacher Education Club, Figure Skating Club, and American Sign Language Club.  She is also a part of various Honor Societies such as Golden Key International Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi International Education Honor Society, and is a part of the Honors Program.   Kaitlyn volunteers at Vacation Bible School at St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church and at the Campus and Community Children’s Center in Fredonia. 

When asked about her favorite thing about Fredonia, Kaitlyn said “My favorite thing about Fredonia is how no matter what you major in or where you go on campus, there is a sense of community and everyone is welcome and feels like they are important.”

 In regards to her future, Kaitlyn said that her goal for this year is to enjoy the time that she has with her friends, and learn as much as she can before student teaching in the fall. Her goal for after graduation is to become a kindergarten teacher and eventually get her Master’s degree in education.
