A term that describes Kolbeck is caring. As an adjective, caring means displaying kindness or concern for others. As a noun, caring refers to the work or practice of looking after those unable to care for themselves or in need of a helping hand.

One nominator said this about Kolbeck: “She holds herself to a high academic standard while maintaining a busy extra-curricular schedule. She is highly respectful to all individuals with a constant smile on her face. She is a leader by action and is calm under pressure.”

Another nominator said this about her: “Paige is a very caring individual. Her volunteerism has two special highlights, which not all students have the maturity and empathy to be prepared for.
