 Dedication and passion are the best words to describe Kristin Fowler. A recent graduate of Meredith College in Raleigh, Fowler has shown a great number of wonderful qualities that has helped her excel in her academics and her chosen field.


A Burlington resident, Fowler will be moving to Raleigh soon to follow her calling — graphic design. While at Meredith, she immersed herself in what she liked to do and it’s seemed to pay off for her. She recently began a job in Raleigh, doing graphic design work.

Kristin Fowler is August 2011′s Student of the Month.

She was president of Meredith’s American Institute for Graphic Artists chapter as well as art director for the Colton Review 2011. She also did graphic design work as a Dean of Students Student Assistant while at Meredith College.


“I’m really into art. It’s a way for me to communicate with other people,” Fowler said in a recent phone interview.

When asked what attracted her to graphic design Fowler responded, “The idea of having art and communication in one field.”

Even with all her extracurricular activities, Fowler still managed to find time for her academics, making the Dean’s list six out of eight of her semesters at Meredith. Her secret? Fowler said “it really comes downt to prioritizing things. You need to find a good balance. It’s time management basically.

Myla Fowler nominated her daughter for Student of the Month by saying “she has been on the Dean’s List six out of her eight semesters at Meredith. She has shown true dedication to her academics as well as serving her peers and deserves to be recognized in her hometown of Burlington, N.C.”

During her last year in college, she received the most awards as a graduating senior from Meredith including the Senior Service and Dedication award and Student Leader of the Year award.

“I want to be an art director in the long run. That’s my ultimate goal,” Fowler explained. With the dedicated and passion for what she likes to do, there is no doubt that she will achieve that goal. Fowler has set a great example for her younger sister to follow, along with her peers.
