Pine View School STRIVE Recipients
Akane Beardow | Akane (“color of sunset” in Japanese) was a busy student-athlete when a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia abruptly halted activity in fall 2018. After chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, she was cleared to go out when the pandemic sent her back into semi-isolation. Now in remission, Akane is graduating high school with a 4.8 GPA and has 24 college credits as a dual enrollment student at State College of Florida. She has been accepted at several universities and will choose one with excellent marine biology and zoology programs–career interests fueled, in part, by volunteering at Mote Marine Laboratory while she was undergoing cancer treatment.
