Lexi is ready to hit the slopes and the books at the University of Denver

Lexi is ready to hit the slopes and the books at the University of Denver

Lexi Grafe, an alumna of Northern Voices, is graduating with honors from Mayo High School this spring.  In addition to graduating with honors, Lexi has also been awarded the KTTC Young Hero Award, the Live for Others – Healthy Community Award and the President’s Volunteer Service Award – Gold Level for her extensive volunteer work with Teen Council.  

Lexi is also a member of the National Honor Society, the National Society of High School Scholars, Captain of her Varsity volleyball team and the Honor’s Biology teacher’s assistant at Mayo High School. In addition, she also volunteers at Paws ‘n Claws and the Charter House.

Lexi’s love of medicine is evident in her involvement with the Mayo Clinic’s Medical Post Explorer’s Program and the Mayo Clinic’s Mentorship Program in the neurology department.  Lexi attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine in Boston and also spent three weeks in Italy and Greece last summer with her Latin class. This summer she is volunteering with Youthlinc and will be heading to Thailand for a 3 week service project.    

Lexi received very generous academic scholarship offers from the College of St. Benedict’s/St. John’s University, Luther College and Gustavus Adolfus College, but her heart is in the Rocky Mountains and she has decided to attend the University of Denver, a mid-sized, private college in beautiful Colorado.  Lexi was awarded the Chancellor’s Scholarship, which is the highest academic scholarship that they offer and they also offered her a place in their University Honors Program.  While Lexi is excited about everything that D.U. offers, she may be more psyched about the downhill skiing that will be just outside her door.  She is planning a career in either neurology or neuropsychology and is excited to start this new chapter in her life.

She is grateful to the teachers and staff at Northern Voices and the Moog Center for giving her a strong oral foundation and for helping her to achieve her dreams.  Lexi wants all the students and alumni at Northern Voices to realize that there is no limit to what you can achieve!
