(2-11-23) Kirsten Lee of Carroll High School in Fort Wayne was named the recipient of the Mental Attitude Award by the IHSAA Executive Committee after today’s state meet.

She qualified for the State Finals in 100 and 200 freestyle and was a part of two Charger relay teams. She is the first Carroll girls swimmer to earn the mental attitude award.

Academically, she ranks fourth in her senior class of 573. Kirsten was a 2022 AP Scholar with Honor, as well as a National Merit Semifinalist for the Class of 2023. She also is apart of the National and Spanish Honor Societies and the Freshman Mentoring Program.

Kirsten is the daughter of Sonya & Brad Lee of Fort Wayne. She will be attending the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs where she will pursue her studies in Aeronautical Engineering. She will also swim for the Falcons.

Each year the IHSAA Executive Committee selects a senior who was nominated by her principal and coach and was determined to have best demonstrated mental attitude, scholarship, leadership and athletic ability. Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance, the IHSAA’s proud corporate partners, presented $1,000 of the Carroll High School’s general scholarship fund in the name of Kirsten Lee.
