Senior Joslyn Ketzner shows a heifer at the state fair. Participating in 4H she said has been instrumental in her life.

Already halfway there is Senior Joslyn Ketzner. Dreaming of being a nurse since she was a little kid, Ketzner has done everything she possibly could to make sure her dream comes true. While having her plan all mapped out, it still hasn’t been an easy task. Ketzner is enrolled in five online classes this year, which will all add 15 hours of college credit. She also took five credit hours over the summer; so she will graduate high school with a total of 35 credit hours and will be entering college as a sophomore. “I am taking all of these hours of online classes so I can go right into nursing school,” said Ketzner.  

Ketzner also works as a CNA at Cheyenne County Hospital. She started a year and a half ago, and she said she has really enjoyed it. Ketzner took the class to become a Certified Nurse’s Aide in July of 2017 and got her license the following August. 

Ketzner has grown up in 4-H and has showed in county and state fairs and nation-wide shows. “My experience in 4-H has given me life skills that I believe will only help me to succeed in my nursing goals. I take great pride in knowing that the skills I have acquired in raising and showing livestock has helped me become the person I am today. Caring for livestock has taught me patience, respect, how to remain calm in stressful situations, and how to achieve my goals,” said Ketzner. 

Ketzner said one of her best friends is Senior Lauren Johnson. Johnson said Ketzner is a trustworthy friend. “Joslyn is a great friend to have! ” said Johnson. “I can talk to her about anything and know she won’t go and tell a soul about it.” 

Ketzner plans on attending college in Manhattan, Kan., at Manhattan Area Technical College. 

“My sister is very smart and I am going to miss her,” said her brother Jade Ketzner, sophomore.
