Kathryn Thurston, daughter of Winslow and Richard Thurston, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week.
She is a senior at Franklin High School and a member of the Varsity Golf Team.
For Thurston, golf was a natural sport to get into. She said she “grew up” on the golf course in her neighborhood.
One of her biggest role models is her grandfather.
“He taught me to be honorable and hard working,” she said. He is also who she looks to for inspiration when she is training and competing.
FHS Golf Coach Jon Whipple said of Thurston, “Kathryn has been a four year member of the golf team and has worked hard over these years to improve each and every year. She is just one of those kids who you hope to have a whole team of. I know she will do great things in her future.”
After graduating from FHS this year, she plans to go to college to pursue a degree in nursing.
