2020 Winner: Miki Ivanisin
Hi, my name is Miki Ivanisin. I am originally from Broad Brook, CT but I am currently in Senior in East Granby High School, where I moved, in May 2019. I will be attending Manchester Community College for 2 years then plan to finish my degree, in Criminal Justice, from the University of New Haven.
During my last year of school in East Windsor High, I tried something I never thought would interest me – The Drama Club, I loved it. This past fall, in joined the indoor Track & Field team at my new school. I was a competitive Gymnast for 9 years where I achieved the title “Connecticut State Champion” for 3 years. I have participated in CrossFit and love being outdoors. Some of my interests include hiking, exercising, painting, drawing, reading and doing puzzles. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
My goal for a career is to enter the Policy Academy to train K-9 Officers.
Reaction Statement:For the first time in my life, I was rendered speechless. I don’t know how to show my gratitude and appreciation for being awarded your “Access to Education” Scholarship. Thank you so much for recognizing my hard work.
