Kathy A. Michos of Locust Hill, the 2018 Middlesex Kiwanis Club Teenager of the Year, is described by her biology teacher Nancy Bishop as “a great thinker who is good at finding strengths in those she works with . . . she’s a great role model.”

These comments came at the March 19 awards ceremony at a Middlesex Kiwanis Club meeting where Michos received a $500 scholarship. If she continues in the Kiwanis Teenager of the Year competitions at the district and division levels there could be more cash and/or scholarship awards.

Michos, a senior at West Point High School, also studied under “Pointer Pathway,” a program that allows students to take college level classes through Rappahannock Community College (RCC). This spring, she will be awarded her West Point High School diploma and an associate degree in arts and sciences from RCC. 

Michos’ resume is extensive and her future is full of opportunities. During the March 19 award ceremony, Michos said she will attend either the University of Virginia or The College of William and Mary, and plans to major in kinesiology and pursue a career in physical therapy.

She is the daughter of John and Mary Michos, and has two older brothers Steve, 27, and George, 26. Her brothers are both doctors.
