Growing up in the small town of Kewaunee, Wis., Silver Lake College senior Amanda Kudick never thought that college would be an option for her. Thanks to the generous supporters of Silv
er Lake College, she is the first in her family of six to attend a four-year institution of higher education.

A high school three-sport athlete, multi-sport all-conference player and two-time state basketball champion, Amanda likes the fact that she can continue participating in sports. “I wasn’t quite ready to give up sports and Silver Lake College gave me the opportunity to play basketball and soccer while receiving an education,” she said.

Amanda is pursuing a double major in elementary and secondary math education. Through the college’s student work program, she works part time tutoring fellow students in math. Her dream is to one day teach and coach athletics.

“From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your continuing support of students like me,” Amanda said.

Your gifts can help Silver Lake College students through financial aid and scholarships. Will you please consider a gift today? Explore which giving opportunity is right for you!
