Student of the Year Finalist: Lily Anderson

Lily Anderson is a 2022 Student of the Year Finalist!


Lily is receiving the Academic K award at Knoch High School for making Highest Honor Roll for all four semesters this school year. She is the Vice-President of SkillsUSA and is also a member of NTHS at BCAVTS. As busy as Lily is, she made time to compete in the SkillsUSA District-10 and State competitions in Prepared Speech and was very successful, receiving a Silver medal at Districts and placing 6 out of 10 in the State competition! Also, this very motivated student has attended BCAVTS for three years and obtained the required 1250 cosmetology hours in order to sit for her State Boards. With this amazing accomplishment, Lily recently started on a cooperative education opportunity through BCAVTS, at The Scissors’ Edge with Mrs. Tori Durci, owner and a previous Vo-Tech student. That’s not all! Lily also is a waitress at a local restaurant in Saxonburg. In her free time, she loves drawing, painting and being outside enjoying nature! Beginning in August, Lily plans to attend Butler Beauty Academy to earn her Cosmetology Teachers’ License. After Lily conquers this endeavor, she hopes to teach Cosmetology as this has always been her dream career! We are very proud of Lily!
