About Me

Lauren Ozenkoski is a senior at Teutopolis High School, and she spends her time there passionately involved in various activities. She is president of her class and student council, as well as co-editor of the school newspaper. She is also a member of the dance team, drama club, and Volunteens. In her time away from school, she is typically found curled up with a good book, out with friends, or on the job. She works at the TK Grille, found within the Holiday Inn, as a hostess or server. She isn’t exactly sure where the future is taking her, but she does know it will begin with going straight to college to earn a degree in business.

“I’ve always said CEO is an extraordinary opportunity that creates extraordinary people. I am thrilled to watch myself grow and come into my own through this program.”
