Andrea Kay Kacsits

 

Andrea Kay Kacsits, age 15, is the daughter of John and Susan Kacsits and sister to Olivia and Victoria. She is known at her school as a person of many outstanding gifts. Teachers say Andrea is intelligent and articulate, but also physically gifted and a talented athlete. Her greatest strengths, however, are rooted in her spirit, attitude and heart.

Andrea consistently demonstrates her sensitivity to the needs and feelings of others and her compassion and empathy are evident on a daily basis. An outstanding communicator, Andrea is able to put others at ease and comfortably engage peers as well as adults. A natural self-confidence and openness allow her to share her great sense of humor. She is full of life.

When other students struggle at class work, Andrea is there to help. She has a sensitive heart to those who are suffering or hurting and is quick to offer support and encouragement.

A member of Resurrection Life Church in Rockford, Andrea is active in the church youth group. She is also a strong athlete who balances compassion with her strong competitive nature. It is not unusual to see her express concern and offer help to a member of an opposing team who has been hurt.

Andrea is a member of the National Junior Honor Society, a three-time state champion in 14-and-Under AAU basketball, a member of the 2007 national championship AYBT basketball team, a member of the Lakeshore Regional High Performance Volleyball team in 2008, the only freshman member of the Rockford High School varsity women’s volleyball team, athlete of the month for October 2008, Kendall College Gold Key Award winner for artwork in 2007/2008, and on the Principal’s Honor Roll in every year she has been eligible.

For her balance of gifted academic and athletic talents and compassionate, caring and giving nature, Andrea Kacsits is a fine Example in Excellence at the Rockford High School Freshman Center.
