Kathrine Redding has always been involved in people-centered activity and work related to serving others, and she has especially been drawn to working with children and youth. Whether it was feeding, playing with, and caring for children as a babysitter, being a hostess or working with high ropes activities, archery, axe throwing or maintenance at Camp Moneto, serving as an Irish, jazz, or tap dance instructor for 5 to 13 year-olds in Columbus, Kathrine is a servant leader. And as a student at Columbus North, she earned her CNA certification and worked as a nursing assistant at Brown County Health and Living Center. Those experiences and with encouragement from her health and science teachers have led Kathrine to pursue a career as a pediatric nurse. At North, Kathrine was a member of National Honor Society, French Club, Health Occupation Students of America, and was dance captain and chorus member for North’s production of Mary Poppins.
She is a ten-year member of both 4-H and the American Heritage Girls troop. Kathrine, because of a family tradition of military service, plans on joining the ROTC program in college with the goal of serving as a nurse in the military. She will attend Cedarville University in the fall.
