Kristen Robertson, a sophomore at the Muhlenberg County Campus of Madisonville
Community College (MCC), was nominated by college officials for her leadership in
the CROSS student organization to represent MCC at the Governor s Prayer Breakfast
on March 13 held at the state capitol.
The 19 year-old Robertson, who plans to graduate with an Associate of Arts Degree
in education from MCC in May before transferring to Western Kentucky University to
complete her bachelor s in education program, was excited to be part of this program.
I met students from all parts of Kentucky who had the same desire of keeping faith
a part of our society and giving God the glory for all of our accomplishments.
A 2012 Muhlenberg County High School graduate with dual credit earned from MCC, Robertson
had a head start in college. It was special that I was able to take classes with
my mother the first year. I am thankful for all the wonderful opportunities that
were made available to me. Robertson s mother completed her degree in May 2013 and
was nominated for the student of the year award.
Robertson shared this thought from the Governor s Prayer Breakfast, What God gives
you is a gift, what you do with it is your gift to God!
