Kaylyn Fisher
 
Kaylyn Fisher, a senior at Key Learning Community, is one of 10 high school seniors in Indianapolis  — and one of two IPS seniors – nominated for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.  Established in 1964 by Executive Order of President Lyndon B. Johnson, the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program recognizes some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Each year, up to 161 students are recognized for their scholarly achievements in various academic categories, including the arts and career and technical education.
 
“To be chosen out of all of these students is a huge honor.  It makes me feel really special,” said Kaylyn about being awarded one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students. She currently plans to major in Journalism in college, but says she knows there is a large spectrum of opportunities out there and she is “keeping her options open.”
 
Key Learning Community Principal Michael Akers shared personal insights about the level of dedication Kaylyn demonstrates, “Kaylyn has
overcome so much in her young life. Yet, she has been driven to succeed.
Carrying a 3.4 GPA, she takes two classes at IPS Career Technology Center (CTC) daily and one
at IUPUI twice weekly. She is a Key Learning Ambassador – a member of our student leadership
group. Ball State University is in Kaylyn’s future, as she plans to study journalism there. If Kaylyn approaches her career choice as she has approached the last 13
years of school, there is no doubt in my mind that we will be seeing her
talent displayed on television or reading her work online.”
 
 IPS congratulates Kaylyn Fisher; we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on the future successes of this IPS All Star!
