Robertson---Governors-Prayer-Breakfast-2014(l-r) Kristen Robertson, Corey Downey, TRIO Talent Search Program Coordinator, at the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast March 13.MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (3/20/14) — Kristen Robertson, a sophomore at the Muhlenberg County Campus of Madisonville Community College, was nominated by college officials for her leadership in the CROSS student organization to represent MCC at the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast March 13 held at the state capitol.

The 19-year-old Robertson, who plans to graduate with an Associate of Arts Degree in education from MCC in May before transferring to Western Kentucky University to complete her bachelor’s in education program, was excited to be part of this program. “I met students from all parts of Kentucky who had the same desire of keeping faith a part of our society and giving God the glory for all of our accomplishments.”

A 2012 Muhlenberg County High School graduate with dual credit earned from MCC, Robertson had a head start in college. “It was special that I was able to take classes with my mother the first year. I am thankful for all the wonderful opportunities that were made available to me.”

Robertson’s mother completed her degree in May 2013 and was nominated for the student of the year award.

Robertson shared this thought from the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast, “What God gives you is a gift, what you do with it is your gift to God!”
