Thoughts on your educational experience so far: So far high school has been a fun experience and I have really enjoyed being able to take college courses through Riverland Community College. I think Austin High School has prepared me well for college and all the faculty really care about students having the skills they need to be successful.

Plans for the future: I plan on going off to college and double majoring in agricultural engineering and dairy science.

Thoughts on your experience with the Rotary Club: My experience was very fun and educational as I was able to meet with some highly regarded and upstanding individuals from the community. The one major thing I took away from my experience is that I learned that there is so much more going on here within our community than I had previously known. I also learned the importance of being active and involved in your community and it is a lesson I will carry along with myself on my journey through life.
