Justine Ker
Miss Louisiana's
Outstanding Teen 2011

Justine Ker is the daughter of Jenevieve and Jun-Ing Ker of Choudrant, LA. She currently attends Cedar Creek School with a 4.0 GPA and is a part of the Class of 2012.

Justine will begin her senior year as Student Council Vice-President, Key Club President, National Honor Society Vice-President, and Cedar Creek Cheerleader. She is also the recipient of many regional and state-wide awards in Solo Festival and LMTA Music Rally (eleven-time winner), State Science & Engineering Fair (one-time State Overall Winner, one-time 2nd place winner), State Social Studies Fair (two-time 1st place winner, one-time 2nd place winner), and State Literary Rally (1st place – Algebra I & II, 2nd place – Advanced Math).

In the past, Justine has volunteered her time to the Northern Louisiana Medical Center, Special Olympics, and she has performed as a pianist at the Lincoln Parish Events Center and as a former 1st violinist in the Monroe Youth Symphony Orchestra. Her scholastic ambition is to obtain a Ph.D. in Neurology and to become a neurologist, although her secret dream is to become a world-renowned concert musician.

As Miss Louisiana’s Outstanding Teen 2011, Justine seeks to promote her platform “Lifting Hazards: Backpack Awareness”, which emphasizes the importance of protecting one’s back through good posture and stature, especially in students who tend to carry exceedingly heavy backpacks which can increase the chances of having mental and physical damage to oneself as an adult.

Although she participates in many activities, Justine always finds time to relax and spend with her friends and family, as well as travel around the world—her favorite hobby. Justine recently qualified to enter the National Merit Scholarship competition for 2012, as well.
