“Everyone wants to feel as though they have a purpose in this world. They want to feel as though their career is not just a job to make money but that it is making a difference in people’s lives. I am so blessed that I found a career that fulfills these dreams. A teacher is a very important role model in every student’s life. I am ready to take this position in young students’ lives.”

Kayla is attending York College of Pennsylvania for a Bachelors Degree in Early Elementary/Special Education.
We wish nothing but success for Kayla and would like to thank her for her participation and dedication to the York Fair over the years, and many years to come.
