Stephanie Mallak has devoted much of her life to helping others, a trait she said she learned while attending Hopkins High School. She has taken important life lessons out of the classroom and incorporated them into her daily life as a nurse. Now a mother of three, foster mother to many more, and animal herder of 17 chickens, Mallak’s goal is to continue her legacy of giving back.

Favorite hangout spot during Hopkins High School? Under the stairs!

What Hopkins teacher made a difference? 

I frequently think about Mr. Bosacker. He was my anatomy and physiology teacher. He had a sarcastic sense of humor, but he also cared about us, all while making the class fun!

How did Hopkins prepare you? I learned better organizational and time management skills. There was always, always an opportunity for guidance and growth in the direction you chose
