Everybody has a story: Melody Rozner
November 13, 2015
Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of stories that will spotlight Maize students chosen at random. The idea comes from reporter Steve Hartman’s series formerly broadcast on CBS News.
Senior Melody Rozner hasn’t always been as outgoing and involved as she is now. Rozner transferred to Maize from Bishop Carroll her sophomore year because she felt she had the opportunity to be more involved at Maize.
“It’s just a better environment here than it is there,” Rozner said, “I felt more welcome here.”
The opportunities that Maize provides for Rozner continues to keep her on her feet. Rozner is involved in theatre, choir and bowling. Rozner claimed her first major role as the Ghost of Christmas Present in Maize’s production of “A Christmas Carol.” Hoping to continue within the field of theatre, Rozner plans to attend Wichita State University to possibly double major in marketing and theatre.
Rozner chose to pursue competitive bowling as well. She is part of Maize’s bowling team. This led to leaving her job at McDonald’s and getting hired at West Acres Bowling. Being a part of the staff at the bowling alley, Rozner is able to enhance her bowling capabilities.
“I do get to practice for free, and I get discounts on doing leagues,” Rozner said.
Although Rozner was hesitant about moving to Maize at first, she says it has made a positive impact on her life and now she is thoroughly involved within her school and workplace.
