School: Eagle Valley High School.
Favorite school moment from any year: Every day was special at Eagle Valley High School. It’s impossible to pick just one specific moment to call it my favorite.
Summer plans: I plan to take some summer courses at CMC and then start my basics in the fall.
Where are you headed this fall: Colorado Mountain College in Edwards.
If you’re staying, what are you happiest about keeping: Keeping my family close.
In 10 years you’ll be: I want to be an author or a photographer, but right now my career changes with my mood. I don’t know what I want to do, nor do I have a solid thought of who I will be in 10 years.
Favorite class you took: It’s between ceramics and pottery with Mr. Rittmiller and digital photography with Ms. Spoth. It just doesn’t get any better then that!
Class you wish had been offered: Definitely wish that French class with Ms. Bujnowski had been offered again my junior and senior year. Other then that, I think I would have enjoyed a Latin class.
Anything else? I want to thank the EVHS staff for helping me get through these tough four years. I know I had a rocky start, but I’ve managed to make something of myself and use everything I’ve learned in school as well as in the real world. It’s going to be hard leaving EVHS. However, I know that all those good memories and all the advice I got from the EVHS staff will accompany me wherever I go.
School: Vail Christian High School.
Favorite school moment from any year: Getting asked to play in the 1A All State game and finally getting a basketball letter after my senior season.
Summer plans: I have been elected to serve as chief (president) of a Christian sports camp in Branson, Missouri, called Kanakuk. Then I will golf aplenty and go to college!
Where are you headed this fall: Texas A&M College Station.
If you’re leaving Eagle County, what will you miss most: The people, the fresh air and the mountains. And most importantly, my family.
If you’re staying, what are you happiest about keeping: I am not staying, but I do know that I will keep all the friends I have met here in the valley as I embark on the next stage in my life.
In 10 years you’ll be: What I am now: happy.
Favorite class you took: My seventh period free period.
Class you wish had been offered: A sixth period free period.
Anything else? Whether it is my successes on the basketball court, the putting greens, the school stage or in the classroom, may all the glory go to God.
It would be really hard to spark a wildfire anywhere near Vail Mountain or Beaver Creek right now. Still, unattended campfires will always draw attention.
