From all of her students in her sewing classes, Kathryn Crandall nominated Kristi Mendenhall. Mrs. Crandalls said, "Kristi has been involved in sewing since she was in Junior High. She has been a winner on several levels each year at the Make it With Wool competition. Kristi is often seen teaching other students around her a specific sewing skill. She is extremely helpful and shares her knowledge and passion for sewing. Kristi Mendenhall also is a member, chapter officer, and the State FCCLA President! I am so proud of her and appreciate her service. My goal for her is to have her become a sewing teacher and replace me when I retire!"
