Meet St. Ursula Graduate Celia Nusekabel
St. Ursula grad feels well prepared for future
From the blog she wrote for prospective students on the St. Ursula Academy (SUA) admissions site to the religion classes that helped deepen her faith, Celia Nusekabel left her mark at her alma mater and feels well prepared for the future.
Nusekabel, who attended grade school at St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Bridgetown, said she “really didn’t consider anywhere else” for high school, largely due to older sister Grace’s positive experience at the Academy. “I followed in my sister’s footsteps and she helped me figure things out, but my path was a lot different.”
She was selected as a Student Ambassador during freshman year and served in that role through-out her time at SUA. Nusekabel was also a member of Students for Advancement and club leader for Best Foot Forward (BFF), of which Lelia Kramer, president of SUA, is moderator. “It’s basically a life skills club,” Nusekabel explained. “We had speakers come to discuss different topics, such as self-defense or changing a tire. I loved being able to work with Mrs. Kramer.”
Responding to questions from younger students about high school life on her blog was also beneficial for Nusekabel. “I’m more of a math and science girl, so it really helped me develop my writing skills,” she explained.
She’s especially grateful for the opportunity to grow in her faith. “In my junior and senior year, we had classes on morality and social justice. That really helped me apply my faith to my own life and realize what we do can impact our community and our world.”
Nusekabel will attend Ohio State University in the fall and plans to study exercise science.
