Meet Our Students

Lindsey Powell

Lindsey Powell is a second generation HCC student; her mom graduated in the spring of 2012. Lindsey was home-schooled from the 7th-9th grade but after she finished 9th grade, she was unable to continue home schooling. Since she didn’t want to return to regular school, she quit school all together. After a couple of years, she decided to take the GED exam. Not only did she pass the exam, she also received a scholarship because of her high scores.

After passing the GED, Lindsey started classes here the following fall. She says that everyone at HCC has always been encouraging and has pushed her to do the best that she can. Lindsey knows that she can turn to her teachers whenever she is having a problem. She’s involved in the Science Club, History Club, and Phi Theta Kappa. Being active on campus through clubs has helped her overcome some of her social anxiety; plus, she likes getting to meet new people.

Lindsey anticipates graduating in December 2013 with an AS degree in general sciences. Next fall she’s going to Kentucky Wesleyan to major in zoology. She’s not sure what field she wants to go into, but she wants to work with animals in some way. She would love to either be a veterinarian or to work in conservation.
