Kathryn Egan, a student at Shady Side Academy, has been named the 2004 recipient of Duquesne University’s Mind, Heart and Spirit Award.
The award is designed to recognize achievement in the classroom, athletic accomplishments and community service. Kathryn will receive a $26,000 scholarship to Duquesne University.
Kathryn, of Gibsonia, was nominated for the award by Karen L. Serdy, her guidance counselor.
"The minute that she arrived at Shady Side Academy, Kathryn began contributing," said Serdy. "She eagerly joined into classroom discussion and work, made the varsity soccer team and went out of her way to befriend others."
In addition to stellar academic accomplishments, Kathryn takes part in many extracurricular activities and for four years has been a standout on the varsity soccer team. She was co-captain of the girls’ varsity soccer and track teams. She also spends time helping others through volunteer work with Passavant Hospital, a soccer clinic for disadvantaged children, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater and T.H.A.N.K.S., a Shady Side Academy program to help children in need.
Kathryn received the Mind, Heart and Spirit Award at a recent Pittsburgh Steelers game. The award is given annually, with honorees receiving prizes provided by Duquesne University and the Pittsburgh Steelers Radio Network.
