Department of Modern Languages

Kayla Schaub, '14

Department of Modern Languages Outstanding Senior, French
Recognition Year: 
2014

Kayla Schaub is a French major graduating this summer who has been studying French language and culture since her freshman year of high school. As the Vice-President of our active French Club and a member of Pi Delta Phi, the French National Honor Society, Kayla has benefited from everything the Modern Language Department has to offer. Kayla looks forward to pursuing her master’s degree and doctorate in French and plans to dedicate her life to a career in teaching and service. Kayla has had the privilege to engage in experiential learning by working as a Supplemental Instruction Leader, attending the Ohio Foreign Language Association Conference in 2013 and designing and realizing her senior honors project, “French Learning Community: Linking Wright State French Students with High School Francophone Immigrants”. All of these experiences have provided ample proof that being a world language educator is her dream career.

Kayla is thrilled to receive this award and is grateful for the expertise and guidance of her Wright State professors, who have given her opportunities she never imagined as an undecided freshman. Her hard work has contributed to her success in Wright State’s French program, but without her famille française, these opportunities would not have been possible. The infinite inspiration and motivation from her professors continue to influence Kayla’s passion and dedication, and she hopes to one day have the same positive impact on her own students.

Kayla lives in Huber Heights with her supportive mom and cherished chien Penny, who have been loving and encouraging throughout her undergraduate journey.
