EVHS senior taking an uncommon route
A girl who loves science and math…. You don’t hear of that too often. In fact, it’s not often enough. For one outstanding Eagle Valley High School senior, the love is genuine. So genuine, she’s taking it to the next level.
To know Jean Romersheuser is to know a girl involved in many different activities. She’s an all-around girl with great social skills and an incredible sense of humor. She is well-liked by EVHS staff and students, and is willing to step out of her comfort zone to try new things. She shined in last spring’s EVHS musical Lil’ Abner. “That was my first production and I loved it. I received a lot of support from my peers,” Romersheuser says. She’s modest – she turned out to be hilarious and skilled in her performance as Daisy’s Ma in the show.
Romersheuser grew up in Eagle and remembers when the street by her house (3rd street) was free of traffic and crowding. She was raised by her mom Barbara and dad Sunny and says she has received very good advice from them over the year. The best advice – “be yourself”. She has memories of Eagle Valley Elementary and Eagle Valley Middle School and all of the familiar sights and sounds of a small town.
Romersheuser is an amazing girl and one of the most amazing things about her is her love for science and math. She’s heading to the Colorado School of Mines this fall to pursue a degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Her dad is an electrician and she has always enjoyed working with him. “I want to take it to the next step,” she explains. Her advice for young girls wanting a career in the math and science fields is simple. “Don’t be intimidated. Show that you can be outspoken and confident.” This summer, Romersheuser plans to work with her father again.
Romersheuser stays busy. When she’s not chowing down on stir-fry or subbing as a lifeguard at the Eagle Pool, she’s involved somewhere else. At EVHS, she lettered in volleyball, basketball and track and participated in band, LEO, DADD and Link Crew. She also can play the piano.
The thing Romersheuser thinks she’ll miss most about the school is the people. But it’s obvious that with her people skills, she’ll meet and befriend a whole new group of people at Mines. Romersheuser is excited about her future plans. “I’m ready to be done.”

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
