Name:  Rachel Ravencraft

Hometown:  Cynthiana, Kentucky

Classification: Senior

Major: Early Childhood Development and Family Relations

Why Kentucky State?

I chose Kentucky State because it is a small campus that is close to work and home.

What is your major and why did you choose this area of study?

I chose early childhood development and family studies with the hope of being able to assist families and/or children in crisis.

Who inspires you and why?

My husband inspires me. He is a retired, disabled firefighter and paramedic who has given of himself for others since he was a young man and who continues to do so still today.  Now, instead of as a firefighter and paramedic, he gives of himself by working for God’s Pantry Food Bank.

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

I plant to continue on to graduate school to obtain a master’s degree in juvenile justice, policy and leadership.

Words to live by: Life is short, live each day like there is no tomorrow and treat others better than they treat you.
