Since the eighth grade, Lauren Boysa knew she wanted to be an art teacher and will attend Boston University to pursue her dream. Lauren strives to paint every day “not only to get better, but for my love of art.” The daughter of Jennifer and Joseph Boysa of Oconomowoc will receive $12,000 over four years as the winner of the M. Jane Hartnett Scholarship. Lauren has played the violin for nine years and served as co-leader of the orchestra club. She was also in National, Science, and Tri-M Music Honor Societies, and LINK Crew.

Competing on the Varsity track team for four years earned her a spot as senior captain. Her teacher and coach wrote, “Lauren is the archetype of what we want our students to achieve in school and who we want them to become as human beings.”
