One of the top 10 Downriver League golfers last season, Trenton senior Kate Plassman has been a standout not only on the course, but also as a student and as a leader. While she possesses a 4.0 grade-point average, she also supplements that by being involved in the Math Club, Spanish Club, Mock Trial, is a captain on both the golf team and Quiz Bowl, is the executive board historian for the National Honor Society and also manages to stay involved at the First Presbyterian Church of Trenton. She has showcased her talent in a number of different ways and her coach, Steve Burk, noted that she has not been reluctant in the slightest to helping out others in any way possible, stating that “Kate is an incredible student-athlete. She leads by example through hard work and determination and is very helpful to our younger players.” Along with her efforts with this year’s team, she took the next step by organizing an event to help the golf program for years to come. “We graduated six seniors and we had to get more girls for the golf team, so Kate went out on her own and set up a meeting at the middle school and was able to get some freshman to come out and play,” Burk said. She is currently weighing her options for college, but plans to major in marketing and advertising once she graduates from Trenton. Her parents, Angie and Rob, are excited to see the next step in her path.
