Teachers say Natalie Gricius is “the best kind of role model … always thinking of others.” She taught Sunday school classes and youth basketball and volunteered to help homeless families. Natalie played varsity basketball all four years at OHS, plus four years of soccer and two years on the swim team.
The daughter of Jason and Kelly Gricius of Oconomowoc finished in the top 5% of her class. She will receive $12,000 over four years as the winner of another M. Jane Hartnett Scholarship. Natalie dreams of becoming a nurse practitioner “to help and comfort people when they're going through difficult times.” She will attend Carroll University in Waukesha.
