When asked about why she chose the University of Iowa, she said, “I grew up as a Hawkeye fan and when I decided to go into business, I was researching schools and the Iowa Tippie College of Business was very highly critically acclaimed.”
Kinne was recently accepted into the Iowa Tippie College of Business. Most students get accepted into the college as juniors or seniors, but Kinne will be starting the program next year as a freshman through a direct admissions program.
Kinne will be double majoring in finance and management, and she says she hopes to graduate with an MBA (Masters in Business Administration).
She also received a scholarship through the University of Iowa. As a sophomore, Kinne entered an essay writing contest through the writing school at Iowa. Her performance ended up giving her the experience to read her essay in front of a crowd at the Iowa State Capitol and a scholarship.
Kinne has also recently finished out her drill team career at Boone High, and she reports that she will not be trying out for the Iowa dance team, bringing an end to her dance career after this year.
As a cheerleader, drill team member, and National Honor Society member, Kinne has Iowa in her sights and is leaving Boone High behind. Good luck, Erin Kinnie.
