BLUFFTON — Libby Schaadt, 16, a junior at Bluffton High School, is looking forward to her senior year.
Schaadt is involved in three sports at Bluffton, including basketball, softball and volleyball.
“I am currently looking for scholarships in softball right now and hopefully at the Division I level,” she said.
She hopes to commit to a school by the end of summer.
Schaadt maintains a nearly 4.0-grade point average and tries to help other students that may be struggling academically.
“I enjoy helping the younger ones tutoring in the elementary school, and I tutor high school students as well,” she said.
She’s also involved in several clubs and organizations.
“I’m involved in math club, math team, Latin club, National Honor Society and Rennaisance Club,” she said.
Schaadt is hoping to pursue a medical career in college.
“Both my parents are involved in the medical field. I look up to them the most, and that just seems like the path that I’ll go down because it’s easy for me to understand because of my parents being in it,” she said. “That’s what they know, so they can help me with that. I find it really interesting, and I would like to break some boundaries in the medical field,”
She’s leaning towards specializing in something in the radiology field and has already started looking where she’ll want to go.
“I’ve taken visits at Notre Dame, Detroit Mercy in Michigan and then I’ve been up to Cleveland State, and I’m currently looking at also Rutgers out of Massachusetts and Purdue also, so it’s a wide range. I would like to also get in contact from Miami University about their programs and their softball program,” Schaadt said.
Schaadt says she enjoys her experience at Bluffton High School.
“It’s small so the teachers, they give you a lot of attention. If I ever have a problem, I can easily get it fixed. If I’m ever stressed out, I can talk to my teachers and they always help,” she added.
