School Activities: In school, I participate in many activities including volleyball, basketball, track and field, Student Council and National Honor Society.
Activities/Work Outside of School: Outside of school, I am involved in various activities within my church such as helping with church dinners. I also help coach park and rec basketball and volleyball. I also work at Ace Hardware in Spring Valley on the weekends.
Favorite Class, and why? My favorite class in school is anatomy and physiology because I love learning about the human body and its functions.
Why is a Solid Education Important? A solid education is important for many reasons. One reason being is it opens up a variety of jobs and opportunities after school. A solid education also teaches one important life skills such as time management, responsibility and dedication.
Immediate Plans After High School Graduation: After high school, I plan on attending Winona State University and majoring in nursing. As of now, my plan is to attend Winona for the prerequisites needed for the program then transfer to the program through Rochester.
Long-term Plans/Goals: My long term plan is to attend Winona State for nursing and hopefully end up working at Mayo Clinic once I am graduated. My dream job would be to work on a cardiovascular ICU or work on a labor and delivery unit.
Note: The Spring Valley Kiwanis Club annually recognizes the top academic performers at Kingsland High School. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the plans to honor the students in person are still unknown. Typically, they attend a meeting of Kiwanis with their parents for recognition.
