This month's St. Joe's Scholar Award goes to an area student who is as much devoted to her academics as she is to her faith.
Katie Fortney is a Senior at Parkersburg Christian School.
In her free time, it's common to see Katie looking after the kids at her church's Sunday school nursery or in the day care.
She has a lot to juggle, But Katie says it's easy when you love what you do.
"If you just focus on your goals, it comes easy than if you're trying to fight what you want to do. Just put your heart into everything you do," says Katie Fortney, St. Joe's Scholar Award Winner.
Katie plans on continuing her schooling at WVU at Parkersburg where she will pursue a degree in Education.
