Kellie (Holler) Soendergaard

$5,000 Buell Graduate

A 2003 graduate of Fort Atkinson High School, Soendergaard graduated summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in Germanic studies. Her interest in linguistics led her onto an international path, studying and working in both the Netherlands and Thailand where she realized that her work with student advising and counseling was where she found her greatest reward. She has now relocated back to the United States and is beginning a master’s degree program in school counseling at Northeastern Illinois University.
