What is your favorite memory of high school? Paige and I were fortunate to compete at FCCLA National STAR two years in a row. Our trips to Washington, DC and San Diego, CA were some of the greatest experiences! I also loved our class trip to Washington, DC and New York City last summer.
What advice can you offer underclassmen? Put yourself out there because you will learn some of the greatest life values early on, especially in extracurricular activities. By being involved during high school, you will be so much farther ahead of those who decide to slack off. Your future college and career aspirations will be greatly influenced by your experiences and achievements.
What are your future plans and where do you hope to be in five years? I plan to attend the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I will major in Organizational and Relational Communications and gain a minor of either Business Management or Marketing. In five years, I hope to have a great start on my future career goals, starting my own family, while possibly furthering my education by getting my Master’s degree.
