Van Vactor, originally from Marshall County, transferred to Dawson Springs High school her freshman year and graduated in 2012.

Her career goal is to one day be a healthcare administrator at a long-term care/assisted living facility or an information administrator in a healthcare organization.

She is currently a student ambassador and represents MSU by interacting with the public and by donating time to Madisonville Food Bank food drives, Hopkins County Animal Shelter and Browning Springs Middle School backpack program.
