Kaitlyn Boscarino

Residence: Cranberry

Age: 17

School: Kaitlyn is a junior at Seneca Valley High School.

Family: Parents, Paul and Kelly; and brother, Michael, 21

Activities: She works at Sherwood Oaks and is a class treasurer and treasurer for the National Honor Society and a varsity cheerleader.

Notable: Kaitlyn earned a full scholarship to the Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week at Lycoming College in Williamsport during the week of July 6. During the week, student companies simulate the actual operation of their own businesses for the equivalent of three years. Business volunteers serve as company advisors who mentor the students as they face many of the decisions real executives confront. The companies will compete against each other.

Quote: "It's a business camp for students interested in business. Business owners and CEOs will give seminars, and we will start up a pretend business and see how successful it is. I was excited when I found out. I'm interested in majoring in business in college, and I thought this would be a good way to find out if it is really what I want to do."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
