Katherine Arch (’16) is a Senior English Major from Iowa City, Iowa. She is the daughter of Chris and Carol Arch and has four siblings. Following graduation, Katherine hopes to pursue a master’s degree in Special Education or English Education.
Throughout high school and college, Katherine has been heavily involved in working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and she hopes to use her experiences with this population more extensively following her time at IWU.
This summer, she is working as an intern at The Shepherd’s college which is a higher-education institution for people with special needs. She is excited for this opportunity to further pursue God’s calling for her life.
Besides traditional school activities, Katherine keeps busy with her involvement in both Cross Country and Track and Field; she runs long distance (5k and 10k) in Track and runs 5k for Cross Country.
Katherine is very excited to be part of the Alumni Writing staff and is eager to share the stories of how IWU grads are using their degrees to live uncommon and extraordinary lives.
