Design by Robert Frost

I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth --
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth --
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.

What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall?--
If design govern in a thing so small.

Susan Brown

My name is Susan Brown and I am graduating in the class of 2014 at HUHS. I have participated in many co-curriculars while at HUHS, including the varsity girls swim team, Model United Nations, Student Council, FFA, NHS, and band. I was second all-conference in the 200 free relay in swimming this fall, and won Best Delegation in Model United Nations this past season. In the fall of 2014 I will be attending Colorado State University for an undergraduate degree in zoology with a Pre-Veterinary focus, and plan on continuing my education at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. After my training, I plan to become a wildlife veterinarian, working to rehabilitate wild animals. I enjoy hiking, backpacing, canoeing, camping, competitive swimming, and photography. I have one younger sister, and together we love traveling and exploring. I love backcountry camping, and have been on extended wilderness trips in Canada and Alaska. On my most recent trip in the Brooks Range of Alaska, I backpacked for 45 days with 6 other girls. I plan to continue my love for the outdoors by working at my summer camp leading short wilderness trips.
