In spite of all that needed overcome, Kari made Dean’s List for her first semester at WVU. We knew it would be close, and it was.
She earned a 3.53 GPA. She had three A’s (including an A+) and two B’s. She worked hard, hardly missed any classes (except for the Vantrease sentencing hearing), and took advantage of the college experience at the same time.
Kari continues to make us proud in so many ways. She was faced with pressures that most people would crumble under. Her determination, a trait she shares with Ryan, is admirable.
