Girl with the Arrow

Kiersten Geiger (October 2001)
Kianu Alumna- Class of 1999


I would like to nominate Kiersten Geiger for the Girl with the Arrow for October. Kiersten and I met our first year at Muskingum in 1996. We were great friends instantly and had more fun that I can even remember I am sure! Through the years since I have watched Kiersten struggle through many things and attempted to be there for her as best I could although there were times when I wasn't there. There were times when I was and she didn't want me to be. There were times when we wanted to be nowhere near each other! Through it all, we have managed to stay close friends. I have watched her grow in ways unimaginable over the last year. I have watched her life shatter and her slowly put the pieces back together when so many would've given up. She has been a friend through marital spats and financial crisis! She has listened to me rant about things that she knows nothing about but listens all the same. She has taught me so much about myself and about life.

Last year Kiersten took a day off of work to drive down to Waverly, Ohio to talk to my junior high and high school students about eating disorders. She touched those kids in ways that she will never know. She opened up to those kids like I have never seen her do. She bared her soul to a bunch of adolescents in the hopes that she could help one avoid the heartache that she has suffered. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I wish you all could've been there. It was a side of Kiersten that most never get to see. This year she is again coming to my rescue and doing two teen conferences for the jr high/high school girls in my county. Her life lessons and honesty are ones that could not be mirrored by any other speaker. I am grateful beyond words that she has chosen to do this. I just wanted to take this chance to let others know the good she is doing and the friend that she is to me.
