Graduation is a bittersweet moment for many people. The graduates are excited to be moving on to the next big moment of their lives while the parents are seeing their babies walk across the stage, hesitant to let them go. The students that are left behind are looking towards their future while saying goodbye to their friends. One such student is Kristen Ferrara.
Kristen is the Valedictorian of the Hudson High School Class of 2017. She has accomplished a lot in her four years at Hudson. Kristen and her partner placed first in the 2017 District UIL Cross-Ex debate meet, and went to the state competition for their second time following an undefeated season. She was the Secretary of the National Honor Society her Senior year, and was a member for two years. Kristen won third in the District UIL Editorial Writing competition, and went on to win first place in the Regional UIL competition, and third in the State of Texas.
Kristen is also a very accomplished athlete. She was on the Varsity Soccer Team for four years, and made 2nd Team All-District. She was also on the JV Cross Country team.
Kristen will be attending Rice University this fall and majoring in Political Science. She plans on getting her law degree in either constitutional, environmental, or immigration law from a highly selective university. She then plans on practicing law in one of these fields.
Kristen said that “Although I will miss my friends and family, I look forward to the opportunities Houston and college have to offer.”

She has been accepted in McCombs Business College. Along with many of Kristina’s educational achievements, she also has many athletic achievements in the area of tennis. She is ranked number two in her 2016-2017 senior class and has gone to state for tennis three times during her high school career.
