While at St. Andrew, Ravyn was able to complete the Montana State University Bioscience Extension Program, as well as classes in Photography, Physics, and EMT at UM Helena. Ravyn describes herself as very self-motivated, and her sense of humor and quirky personality will be greatly missed at St. Andrew. Ravyn has been awarded several scholarships including Premier Scholarship, a Montana National Guard scholarship, and for her volunteer work in the community, Youth Serve Montana Scholarship from the governor. Her future plans are to major in Biotechnology and Immunology at Montana State University. Ravyn advises upcoming students to persevere through their difficulties at high school because the rewards of being at St. Andrew are well worth the effort.
