Lake Region Woman is pleased to announce that the 2012 Lake Region Woman Mentor Scholarship award winner is Stephanie Hatten.
The daughter of Robert and Sheri Hatten of Devils Lake, Hatten is in her final year at the University of North Dakota, studying civil engineering. Devils Lake can be an exceptional place to live while studying civil engineering due to the ample road construction and continued growth that the city has experienced.
Last summer, Hatten interned with Kadrmas, Lee, and Jackson to obtain valuable experience in her field of study.
For as long as Hatten can remember, she has always wanted to have a career that would somehow help improve society and the way people live their lives. One of the activities that she has participated in that encourages community involvement is 4-H. While participating in Four Leaf Friends,
Hatten was part of many community service projects, including volunteering at a local nursing home and the Thanksgiving food drive. Hatten recognized that her group leader in 4-H, Cindy Olson, has been a role model for her.
“She has a kind and caring personality and always made sure we gave back to the community,” said Stephanie.
Olson has known Hatten for 17 years and has watched her play a vital leadership role from projects like assembling care packages for foster children, making survivor bracelets to Relay for Life participants, to playing bingo with nursing home residents.
