Address: Lewistown

School Activities and awards: Volleyball, Swimming, Softball, Meistersingers, Key Club, BPA, Science Club, Student Council, Class President, Scholar Athlete, Honor Roll, Honda Achievement Breakfast, and Youth Leadership.

If I were principal for a day: I would allow pets in school.

Favorite school memory: Friday night football games are always memorable. I learned to love them when I got to watch my brothers play.

My advice to parents: Let your kids be involved in as much as possible. Yes, it can be stressful at times but they make so many memories and they only have so long to be involved in school activities.

My biggest regret: Not playing softball sooner. It has become one of my favorite sports to play and I’ve met some of my best friends through the sport.

Next year I will be: Attending an undecided college for an undecided major but I’ll be somewhere doing something I just don’t know what or where.
