Renaissance Woman Lindsey Dobbins

High school senior Lindsey Dobbins is known for her art and academics.

Chanhassen’s Lindsey Dobbins, senior at Minnetonka High School, is recognized nationally for her academics and artwork.

Dobbins is a National Advanced Placement Scholar, which means she’s passed 8 advanced placement exams with a score of 4 or 5—well above the passing score of 3. “It’s nice to be honored for something I put so much time and effort into,” she says.

When she was a sophomore, one of Dobbins’ drawings won a National Gold Key award and was displayed at the Department of Education in Washington, D.C. “I did the drawing that won in pencil, but lately I have been doing more of my drawings in colored pencil or charcoal,” she says. As a sophomore, five of her pieces earned state and regional Gold Key awards.

After high school, Dobbins is interested in pursuing a degree in political science to start a career in public policy or law.
