LA GRANGE – In the coming weeks we will be getting to know some of the outstanding students at Nazareth Academy. This week we meet Katie Mazur.
Sophomore Katie Mazur of Western Springs has spent much of her time this fall playing with the Varsity Tennis team, but she has still made an impression in the classroom. “She is quite dedicated to her studies, always prepared and ready to learn. She is helpful, responsible and always on task. She is a student that others should look up to and model,” says Spanish teacher Terri Thomas. At Nazareth she participates in Youth Initiative, Health Careers Club, Choir, Math Club and SMILE. In the community, she is also active with Youth Leadershop, Pool Pals, Crossroads and as a fundraiser for ALS.
What are your post-high school plans?
I hope to attend college and study either Sports Medicine of Physical Therapy. I’ve had a lot of sports-related injuries so I feel like I am already familiar with both of these studies and would enjoy either.
What do you like to do on the weekends?
During the fall, my weekends are filled with tennis tournaments. Throughout the rest of the year I am busy with soccer games [Katie plays on Nazareth’s Varsity team]. I also like to hang out with my friends and attend Naz sporting events.
