Meet Karen Backes
I was a writer for The Record (student newspaper). I worked at HAB and Saint John's Prep School. I was on the track team and involved with student government. I studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria.
I was a transfer student. I've been involved with the Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) program for many years. I participate in Companions on a Journey, a group that promotes spiritual companioning. I enjoy running and camping and I have two children – Emma (16 years), Christopher (14 years).
These are a few of my favorite things:
- Movies: Sound of Music, Dirty Dancing and Grease
- Plays: Joseph and the Amazing Techni-color Dream Coat, Phantom of the Opera and Mama Mia
- Books: Kite Runner and Cider House Rules
