Britons Give Solid Performance at IHSA Semi Finals (March 19-20, 2016)
Albion's pair of IHSA Regional champion western riders traveled to Black Hawk College in Galva, Illinois over the weekend of March 19 and 20 to pit their skills against the champions of other IHSA regions and try for a chance at the IHSA National Championship show.
In the Intermediate division, sophomore Jourdan Tonti (Livonia/Churchill) finished fifth in her horsemanship class, while classmate and teammate Taylor Sandberg (Spring Lake/Spring Lake) competed in Advanced horsemanship with an identical result.
Meanwhile, Albion's alumni division regional standout Katie Petchell '13 traveled to a separate Semi Final show at Middle Tennessee State University, where she finished fifth in Alumni Reining.
The Britons' post-season results came as Tonti and Sandberg received recognition from the IHSA for their achievements in the classroom as well; the sophomores were both named to the IHSA All-Academic teams for the 2015-2016 school year.
Evan Kneisel, '17
As a senior in high school, Evan Kneisel, '17, visited his fair share of colleges, trying to figure out where he wanted to spend the next four years of his life. During his visit to Albion's campus, though, he instantly knew that it was the right fit for him. He describes Albion College as tightly knit, whose faculty and students are all actively involved in the betterment of both the College and the surrounding community. "What sets Albion apart from other schools is how the faculty genuinely want you to succeed and they will go to great lengths to put you in a position for success," he says. When asked to describe his experience at Albion he answers with one word—"opportunity".
Evan has had many hands-on opportunities throughout his time on campus. The Carl A. Gerstacker Institute for Business and Management has allowed him to gain real world experience through his internship with The Parade Company in Detroit, MI. The transferable skills he obtained from the time spent there helped him to then get another summer internship within the Institutional Advancement department on Albion's campus. Here, he was able to work on "behind the scenes" projects and work with people who care about the direction of Albion College, which then deepened his own appreciation for his school.
On campus, Evan is a member of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity and he is involved with the Gerstacker Institute, which he says has given him the resources and opportunities to expand himself professionally.
Originally, he chose Albion because of the small class sizes and how genuine and passionate the professors are. He explains that he is glad that he chose to attend school here also because the Liberal Arts education has allowed him to become versatile in his education, to learn a little bit about everything while also focusing in on one major area of study. He explains, "the most valuable thing that Albion has taught me wasn't learned in the classroom, it's what I have gained through experiences while out in the real world."
After completing his degree in mass communications at Albion, Evan plans to move out west where his family is located to get a few years of "real-world" experience under his belt in either design, marketing, advertising or sponsorship, before applying for graduate school
