Kristen Meredith Livingston

William B. Douglas Carolina Scholar
South Aiken High School
Aiken, SC

The memories created during my time at the University of South Carolina are priceless. When I look back over the past four years, I remember conversations shared with friends, late nights studying for exams, numerous cups of coffee consumed and hours of ballroom dance practice. I remember football games, warm afternoons on the Horseshoe and game nights with friends. I remember dreaming about one day becoming a forensic chemist and then receiving my first graduate school acceptance letter that invited me to pursue my Ph.D. in forensic chemistry. As my time at Carolina comes to an end, I am thankful for the nostalgia I will always carry with me. I have never been as proud as I am now to say, “Forever to thee.” 

Future plans: Kristen will pursue a doctorate in chemistry at the University of Central Florida.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
