Senior Helen Kaul won the Citizen of the Year Award and the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award. She said it was, “Kind of cool to be recognized.”

Julie Burchett, experiential learning director, described Kaul as, “Incredible, dependable, and respectable.”

“As a person, I love her. She’s a very special person. Whatever she chooses to do, career wise, she will be successful,” Burchett said.

Kaul got accepted into Washington University, one of her number one picks to study at, and she was ecstatic to hear that news, she said.

Although Kaul has not decided what major she wants to pursue, Sam Syberg, senior, has confidence she will choose a good major.

Syberg said Kaul will be successful in the future in spite of her not choosing a field to major in because “she’ll choose something she’s passionate about, and I know she’s going to work hard for any career she chooses.”

“She juggles so much and manages to still carry herself gracefully and remain an amazing friend,” Bre Kenny, senior, said.

“Every time I hang out with her, I feel like she has something new to tell me about jazz or feminism,” Syberg said.

Kaul has been played the piano ever since she was six years old and started taking jazz lessons in the ninth grade and she loves it.
