○ Whiz Kid: Anna Leavitt, 22.
○ Whiz Kid's School/Church/Community Center: Anna is in her senior year at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, where she is majoring in environmental science.
○ Whiz Kid's Accomplishment: Maintaining honor-level grades while pursuing both her passions and professional goals during her college career.
○ Whiz Kid's Key to Awesomeness: Anna is an example of that special type of student who truly devotes herself intellectually to her work. She is a life-long artist, growing up with a pencil and paper while maintaining a high honors GPA at Holliston High School. Back in 2006, she was accepted to the prestigious Colby College of Western Maine. Since then Anna has been a honors student at Colby, as well as a member of the Environmental Science Student Advisory Committee. In addition to being an ES major, Anna has also managed to take a diverse plethora of art courses over the past four years, including three that were taught exclusively in Spanish when she studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argenitna last Spring. While in Buenos Aires, Anna took a break from her environmental studies to focus entirely on Art; taking courses in printmaking, glass, and figure drawing.
All this multi-subject studyiung is just the natural flow of learning for this talented young women from Holliston. Her work, which tends to blend her love for environmentalism with her own unique artistic character, ranges from stained glasswork to printmaking and so much more. There is no telling where Anna Leavitt’s talents might lead her as she heads towards graduation this May, but one thing’s for certain, she will follow her passions to their ends and that alone should more than likely lead her someplace very special.
