2018 Senior Spotlight

By Staff | Apr 5, 2018

Parents/Family: Parents: Kelley Nelson and Tom Jewell; brother: Noah Jewell

Hobbies/Activities: Football and Wrestling Cheerleading, show choir, concert choir, and spending time with friends and family.

Being a Senior Means: The last years: last year to walk down the hallway and see all your friends that you grew up with; the last year to play that sport you put all your hard work into; last year of everything that you accomplished during your 4 years of your life. Enjoy all the last during your senior year since it does go by fast.

Describe a High School event that should be placed in the video yearbook. Going to West Elementary during Home- coming pep rally while being able to sign all the kids flags.

What would be one memory from high school that you would include in a time capsule? Our graduation ceremony because we can look back on that day that we finally completed after four years of hard work, and relive that day over again. We can also look back on that day to see how much we have changed throughout out the years.

What is one thing you learned from a teacher that you will never forget? A lot of teachers have taught me some important stuff during my four years of high school, but the one that stuck out the most would be Mrs. Strube telling our U.S. History class that “no matter how hard your whole life is you can succeed in school and also life.”

Greatest Accomplishment: Being a Cheerleader and stepping out of my comfort zone and loving who I am. Thanks Mrs. Moffitt! Another thing that was my greatest accomplishment would be getting my varsity letter.

Advice to Underclass: Have fun! Don’t worry about the little things and what people think of you since none of that matters. Enjoy every minute of your high school experience.

Future Plans: Attend Iowa Lakes in the fall for a year to get my associate degree in child protective services then transferring to BV to complete my studies.
