Upper Arlington High School graduate, Ohio
My high school years

Author 2nd from left getting ready for Ohio state track 4x800 meter race. We placed fourth in the state.

I remember the coach told me he thought I could be one of his top four runners. Amazingly enough, I turned out be number one on our eighth grade cross country team, and was ranked as one of the top two runners in the area.

In my junior year, my high school cross country team won the State (Ohio) Cross Country championship and I was fortunate enough to be one of the top five runners for our winning team. What an incredible experience and it put us in the local spotlight for a while. Of course, the previous spring our track team had placed 2nd in the state, and I had had the honor of being a member of the 4th place 4x800 team. Actually, three years running, I went to State meet in the 4x800 and in Cross-Country.

kat jaske cosiIn high school, I started volunteering at COSI, our local hands on science museum. As a point of interest, I trained rats to play basketball at COSI and also presented Rat Basketball and Optical Illusion shows and other little presentations to the public.

Mind you, however, throughout all this I would try to write, for I wanted to finish a novel, and I wrote prose and poetry.

kat jaskeMy senior year in high school I expanded a short story I had started in grade school until it became a full-length fantasy novel called Baydwen. This novel was my senior thesis project and was a finalist for the Matt McCoy Scholarship.

I graduated summa cum laude from Upper Arlington High School. Thanks to the volunteer work I’d done at COSI (see the rats story), I was able to win a modest scholarship from my high school. Due to my various academic and extracurricular accomplishments I not only got into Wake Forest University in NC, but also received a partial merit scholarship from them.

I finished college a semester early with a BA in Psychology and English, magna cum laude.

Shortly thereafter, I won the national prize of $1000 from Quill Books for the poem “sit, perhaps stand”. During that same time period, I actively began to publish poems with Quill Books, the National Library of Poetry, and JMW publishing.
