Palm Beach Atlantic University
Class of 2025

Create a community of strong, self-motivated leaders who will continue impacting the lives of others.

Abby is a servant leader and an all-around role model for her peers. She served on student government all four years in high school, rising to Class President her senior year. She also held leadership roles in the Community Service Club and the District School Council where schools work together to share knowledge. Beyond her leadership roles, Abby started a Youtube Channel to post motivational videos and she gives back by mentoring younger students. She won awards for her character–the First-class Award for demonstrating the first-class attitude in school and the Daughters of the American Revolution Outstanding Citizenship Award for embodying the four pillars: Leadership, Dependability, Patriotism, and Service. Her accomplishments are not without strife. “[My experiences] in my life [have] shaped me into who I am. It helped me to recognize how to stay true to myself and show forgiveness and compassion. It was a difficult experience that I still deal with today, but I am better for it because I recognized I have the power to shift my attitude, not only in this challenge but in all challenges I face in life.” Above all else, Abby’s faith is very important to her having found her identity in Christ her sophomore year of high school. She is active in YoungLife, which meets weekly to share in faith and encourage the community.
