Lauren has been a scholar since her first days of school. She is constantly intrigued by the world and would go to school forever if she could. She loves the library, discussing politics, and engaging with people of other cultures. Lauren is a lifelong learner that does not settle for the answer, "that's just the way things are." She graduated from Missouri State Summa Cum Laude with many scholarships and awards.

Religious Studies

In school, Lauren minored in Religious Studies. The topic peaked her interest freshman year and the curiosity about what others believe never stopped. In the summer of 2019, she had the opportunity to travel to Israel for her minor where she was able to visit world famous holy sites and learn about the religious and political conflict that surround the area.
