Mishicot's Gavin Junk aims to be a technical education teacher | Stellar Students What extracurricular activities have you been involved with during high school? Future Farmers of America, tutoring, baseball, football, wrestling, student government, musical, tractor restoration What is one academic accomplishment about which you feel particularly good about? Being able to maintain a good GPA while taking college-level courses, working and playing sports. I have taken numerous college-level courses and am able to prepare myself for future college classes and being ahead of the game. Which class or extracurricular activity influenced your decision regarding the career you plan to pursue? Tutoring has influenced me the most because I really like helping students who are struggling and I am able to see them grow throughout the years. I have always liked working with other students and teaching is something that I can do every day and I really like the technology education field. What advice do you have for those just starting their high school career? Work hard and don't procrastinate, because it is really hard to catch up. Freshman year, I didn't try that hard and I dug myself a hole and I had to work extra hard to get my GPA back up. Balance school work, but live in the moment with no regrets. Before you know it, high school is over and there are no do-overs. What are your plans after high school? Going to UW-Stout and becoming a technical education teacher. What would you like to be doing 10 years from now? I would like to be teaching technical education at a high school and helping students reach their full potential. Teacher recommendation: "Gavin is a stellar student dedicated to learning. He loves to ask questions and form connections with others in class. He is committed to his community and school as shown through his work with FFA, tractor restoration, baseball, tutoring and more. This student can always been found with a smile on his face and ready to assist others; a skill I appreciate in class and a skill that will no doubt help him in his future classroom as an aspiring educator." — Jamie Propson, agriscience education and FFA adviser
Mishicot's Samantha Anhalt plans career in environmental engineering | Stellar Students What extracurricular activities have you been involved with during high school? National FFA organization, fall and winter varsity dance team, National Honor Society, student government/class officer, choir/music theater program, Power of Positive Students freshman mentoring, Family Career and Community Leaders of America, JV softball during freshman/sophomore year, track and field during junior/senior year What is one academic accomplishment about which you feel particularly good? My 4.0 GPA. Throughout high school, I have worked hard and dedicated myself to my education to maintain my high GPA. I have always strived to be the best student I can be in a range of college-level and hands-on courses. Each of the three Advanced Placement and six college-credit courses I have taken in high school have challenged me academically and shaped me into the well-rounded student I am today. Which class or extracurricular activity influenced your decision regarding the career you plan to pursue? The National FFA organization. This leadership organization with strong roots in agriculture has influenced me to pursue a career in an agriculture-related field. Specifically, I am planning to pursue a career in environmental engineering. The agriculture classes I have taken with Jamie Propson have developed my strong passions for horticulture, natural resources and the environment. Through the hands-on activities in class, such as working in the school greenhouse, and through my supervised agricultural experiences of working at Wilfert Farms and my FFA chapter’s floral business, I have gained valuable experience that will aid me in my future career. What advice do you have for those just starting their high school career? Explore a variety of courses. I believe it is important for students to take advantage of the courses their high school offers that will prepare them for a future career/education, but that they also enjoy participating in. Students should try not to be afraid to take a class that may be slightly out of their comfort zone because it is most likely that they will grow as a person from it and gain a new perspective. What are your plans after high school? Pursuing a degree in environmental engineering. As for where I will be receiving my education, I have been accepted into the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but I am not yet committed. I am still waiting to hear back from Cornell University in New York, as their regular admission decisions are not released until early April. At either of these amazing universities, I am looking forward to expanding my engineering knowledge as well as participating in service organizations to give back to my new community. What would you like to be doing 10 years from now? I would like to be employed at an engineering firm designing systems to reduce the levels of pollution in waterways and improving systems that are used to produce clean drinking water. I want to be making a positive impact on the world so generations to come are able to use and enjoy the earth’s natural resources. In addition to my career, I would like to be volunteering in the community I settle down in because of the high value I have for developing communities and helping those in need. Teacher recommendation: "Sam is stellar as she strives to do her best in all aspects of her life — from athletics like dance, softball and track, to her 4.0 and rigorous, yet relevant, academics, to her over 400 hours of community service in groups including FFA, POPS, FCCLA and more. Sam is a passionate and driven young leader who strives to make the best better and does so with conviction of thought deeper than most adults possess." — Jamie Propson, agriscience instructor and FFA adviser

In middle school, I was required to take a life science class, which is where I found my passion for biology. I continued taking health science classes until I was offered a nursing assistant class through Lakeshore Technical College. After receiving my CNA, I realized that becoming a nurse was the best option for me. What advice do you have for those just starting their high school career? Do not take anything for granted as it can be taken away in the blink of an eye (credit to the coronavirus). But in all seriousness, high school goes by super fast, so get involved, study hard and just have fun because in four short years you’ll be moving on to bigger and better things. What are your plans after high school? I will be attending UW-Eau Claire, where I will be majoring in nursing with hopes to someday become a pediatric nurse practitioner. What would you like to be doing 10 years from now? I see myself either working for a big hospital or running my own clinic. I hope I am impacting the lives of others and helping those in need. I would also like to be starting a family of my own and living somewhere in Wisconsin with a dog or two. Teacher recommendation: "Maddie is a high-achieving, kind and responsible young woman. As her middle school and high school counselor, I have had the pleasure watching Maddie grow over the last seven years. Upon completion of middle school, Maddie had earned two scholarships from the National Junior Honor Society to apply toward her post-secondary goals. Her academic perseverance continued into high school as she took several AP and college-level courses. This rigorous course-load did not stop her from being involved in sports or clubs. Maddie has continued to be a leader in our school community through her involvement in HOSA, student government and POPs as well as several other student organizations. Sports have always been important to Maddie. When a knee injury hindered her ability to play, she remained committed to her team(s) by attending practices and leading from the sidelines. In line with her strong dedication to our school community, Maddie mentors and tutors middle and elementary school students. Maddie has a bright future ahead of her, and I am excited to see all she achieves!" — Sara Greenwood, middle/high school counselor https://www.htrnews.com/story/news/education/2020/11/08/mishicot-high-school-maddie-willems-aims-pediatric-nurse/6077498002/?fbclid=IwAR0qDxWEbOK-yX76549MaAXVYA56u3VzPxhW1I2VPJsvr5zfyjZpDv0zqno
