Class of 2021: Leslie Stark

We celebrate the Class of 2021, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Leslie Stark ’21 of Grinnell, Iowa, is majoring in exercise science-physical education with minors in adapted physical education and educational studies. She plans to obtain her teaching license in the state of Iowa and will be actively searching for a job as an educator.

She says the most important lesson she learned at Ripon College is, “Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone because that is often when you have the most memorable experiences.”

A special memory for here is having the opportunity to complete independent studies that allowed her to work one-on-one with adapted physical education students.
