My three sons, all teenagers.

What is your favorite local charity?
St. Vincent De Paul.

What is your favorite movie?
The God's Must be Crazy.

What is your favorite meal?
Brownies...Oh guess that's not a meal. Fajitas!

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
In the summer I like mornings and tend to get up early. In winter a night owl.

What is your favorite place to visit?
Glacier National Park. Closer to home-North Idaho College beach in Coeur d' Alene.



Abby Pedersen

College attending: Lewis-Clark State College
Field of study: Chemistry, Pre-Med

What does a college education mean to you?
A college education is a wonderful opportunity to learn and to be able to reach your dreams. For me, it means receiving my Bachelor's in Chemistry and then applying to medical school. 

Upon hearing that you won the scholarship, who did you tell first?
I told my mom first because she has been my number one supporter throughout my journey of college. She is an amazing person overall. 

What is your favorite local charity?
My favorite local charity is the Otis Orchards Food Bank. This is a place where donated food items from many local grocery stores are given to people in need for free.

What is your favorite movie?
Even as an adult, I am still a big fan of Disney movies which sounds ridiculuous in itself. The movie Mulan would most likely be my all-time favorite movie especially since I can sing all of the songs. 

What is your favorite meal?
My favorite meal is my mom's homemade spaghetti along with french bread and a strawberry poppy seed spinach salad. To top it all off, her delicious and dense sour cream chocolate cake is to die for. 

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I am a night owl for sure. Many times during the last school year, I would stay up till 3-4am because of how much studying/homework I had. Weirdly enough, I think better at night than in the morning. 

What is your favorite place to visit?
My favorite place to visit is Lake Pend Oreille. My family owns a ski boat that we frequently take across the lake. It is exciting to water ski and tube behind the boat as well.
