Lindsay Kalbfleisch

Miss K-W Oktoberfest 2014

Lindsay is a favourite among the thousands of school children she comes in contact with during the festival through the Schools Program and family events. Making over 125 appearances each year including the Thanksgiving Day Parade, she is an ambassador extending this area's unique German heritage, while increasing national and international interest in our community. She gave a very personal talk about her experiences and "being true to who you really are."  Lindsay related that, on occasion and sometimes intentionally, she has slipped off her track, but then pointed out that that's what made her who she is today and she wouldn't want to change anything. Lots of heart-felt advice to the scholarship recipients and best wishes for them all as they start their next phase of their life journey.

The scholarship recipients thanked KSA for the financial assistance with their education and gave a brief outline of their plans and career aspirations. As well as everyone's best wishes, each of this year's scholarship recipients also received $2,000 towards the cost of his/her first year's tuition and an open invitation to come back and join us for dinner anytime!
