Parents/Family: Parents: Faith Goodman-Kennedy, and Aaron Kennedy; Sisters: Gabby Kennedy and Peyton Kennedy and I have a Step mom: Amber Kennedy

Hobbies/ Activities: I love spending time with family and friends, I love watching Netflix, and I love going out to the movies and going shopping

Being a Senior Means: Being a senior to me means that my next big step in life is coming my way and I have to work hard to earn my school credits in order to get into college. I am blessed to have the education that I have and the great teachers that make our education possible.

What would be one memory from high school that you would include in a time capsule? One memory that I would want to include in a time capsule is cheerleading. In Cheerleading, I was able to feel special in my life and feel like I could belong in high school even though it was really hard for me to get into cheerleading, but the cheerleaders were very thoughtful and nice; they let me cheer at the homecoming game my freshman year and it felt amazing.

What is one thing you learned from a teacher that you will never forget? A teacher once showed me that even though you may feel like you are failing, that doesn’t mean that you should give up. No matter how hard it may be.

Greatest Accomplishment: My greatest accomplishment is working really hard to get good grades and never giving up when time got rough for me.

Advice to Underclass: My advice to the upper class would be, to not give up, your hopes and dreams when all feels like it’s being lost. You should not let negativity get to you. Try to keep your head up high no matter how hard life may be.

Future Plans: My future plans are to attend Iowa Lakes Community college once I graduate high school. Then I will attend the S.A.V.E. Program at Iowa Lakes Community College. Then my major would probably be Human Services.

Parents/Family: Parents: Erika and Paul Thompson

Hobbies/ Activities: Show Choir, Vocal Jazz, painting, running, bike-riding, roller blading, Oklahoma Musical, All-state practices, Shrek the Musical

Being a Senior Means: Being a senior means finding who you are outside of high school. You have to learn to finally be an adult.

Describe a High School event that should be placed in the video yearbook. Getting second at Pella for a show choir competition was one of the proudest moments for Emmetsburg Vocal. We beat 4A schools that have more people and props, but it is the way we connected with each other and the passion we put in the performance that got us second place.

What would be one memory from high school that you would include in a time capsule? Though I didn’t make it into all-state, going through that process has made me a better singer. In the time capsule I would like a memory from one of the camps I went to because I have met so many people who ended up being close friends.

What is one thing you learned from a teacher that you will never forget? Mrs. Strube has taught me that getting good grades isn’t as important as your work ethic.

Greatest Accomplishment: It took me 17 years to realize that worrying what others think about you is pointless, but I have to say that reaching this point is one of the greatest accomplishments I have ever reached.

Advice to Underclass: High School is just a small four years of your life. Don’t get to beat up over what people say or think because there is still a whole other world you haven’t discovered.

Future Plans: Go to Iowa Lakes for two years then transfer to a university.
