About the Student

FGV: Krista Scott

Hello, my name is Krista Scott. I graduated from Butler Senior High School just two years ago. I am currently attending Slippery Rock University. I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree in mathematics and I will be attending graduate school at Slippery Rock to obtain my master’s certification to teach. This fall will be my senior year for my undergraduate degree; however, it is only my third year in college. I decided to take summer classes the past two years so I could eliminate an entire year of schooling. As a first generation college student, I am very grateful and proud of my accomplishments.
