Williamstown Independent School senior Colleen Haggarty has received a $1,000 scholarship from the Cincinnati Enquirer’s scholarship program for children of employees. Haggarty’s father, James Haggarty, has worked for the Enquirer as operations manager since 2003, when the Haggarty’s moved to Grant County from Minnesota.

She has been a straight-A student since enrolling at Williamstown, is currently tied for first in her senior class and is the president of the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society. Haggarty has been active in 4-H for all her years and has worked with her father and the Command Sergeant Major Charles Duffee helping the Grant County High School JROTC program put together the Hundred Acre Woods, a county site where the JROTC members can practice their orienteering skills. She has served on the Youth Council of KEEP (the Kentucky Equine Education Program), is vice chairman of the Sunshine Committee and on the Publicity Committee of the American Bantam Association, among other volunteer commitments.

Haggarty will attend the University of Cincinnati in the fall, enrolled in DAAP (Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning) school, in the graphic design track. She hopes to work in the magazine or the music industry, designing and editing layouts for a magazine, or designing and photographing CD covers and related artwork.
