Every week the Clarion takes a look at a Sinclair student, professor or faculty member to learn about their story and what makes them unique in the Tartan Spotlight series.
Karrie Myers has been a Sinclair student for the last year and a half and is finishing up her associate degree this spring. Myers is holding a 3.4 GPA while working in childcare.
Myers graduated from Centerville High school in 2018. At Centerville, she played a little basketball and four years of varsity softball. She is a coffee enthusiast who loves local hot spots like 3rd Perk, a coffee shop near Sinclair’s campus. Myers also enjoys Hot Yoga, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
Myers is in the Sinclair to University of Dayton Academy. Within this program, it makes getting a bachelor’s degree more affordable and saves a few extra steps through the transfer process. Myers is going to school to become an Intervention Specialist for Middle Childhood Education.
Myers will be participating in dual classes this spring. She will be taking courses at Sinclair and at the University of Dayton’s campus. Myers hopes to excel at The University of Dayton and believes that Centerville and Sinclair have prepared her for it as much as possible.
Karrie enjoys every class at Sinclair, even the hard ones that keep her up late at night. Myers is grateful for the friends she has made at Sinclair and knows they will play a huge role in her life.
After Myers receives her bachelor’s as an Intervention Specialist for Middle Childhood Education she hopes to continue her education to receive a master’s degree in Chemical Dependency Counseling in hopes of working as a counselor later on. When Myers becomes a teacher she hopes she can get more involved with her students and the community by helping coach the basketball or softball team.
Myers is expected to graduate from the University of Dayton in the Spring of 2022 and she can’t help but thank the staff, professors and her peers from Sinclair for teaching her study skills, offering public speaking opportunities, stress management and lifelong friendships.
