She's an academically accomplished student with diverse interests. In addition to science and art club, Anna is very involved with business clubs like DECA and Business Professionals of America. She also volunteers as a youth soccer coach.
"Anna is a student that is really every principal's dream," says Washington High School principal, Leanne Kelley.
Anna got to live out one of her own dreams last year. "This past summer I was actually privileged enough to go with IU to study abroad for six weeks in Spain. While in Spain, I took classes that were all in Spanish, and I actually had to dedicate myself to the entire summer just speaking just Spanish," says Anna.
She doesn't just excel when it comes to her Spanish studies, she also shines among business students.
"She's put together a 30 page international business plan that she'll take to our state DECA contest. [If] she places top three in that, she'll take it to nationals," explains Bill Turner, DECA adviser. He says Anna has her eye on the prize.
"I just signed to go to IU and there I want to study international business with management. So DECA really put me on the road to what I want to study," says Anna.
She explains that her achievements are all by design. "I actually with some friends we made a list of things that we wanted to accomplish in high school. And so some of those were being in the top 25 percent of the class, having a GPA over 3.75 and being involved in at least three diverse activities. So I've accomplished all of those," she says.
Anna's grandfather, Sam Sievers, explains why he nominated her. "Anna is probably one of the most exceptional young ladies I've seen in a long time," says Sievers.
