Best Memories of AHS: Amboy High School holds many great memories! It is funny to look back and remember freshman year when I was terrified to be in high school. Now, senior year, I am terrified to not be in high school! It is amazing to see how much everybody has changed, grown, and matured. My best memory of AHS is senior homecoming, it was the best one of all. I cannot wait to see what the rest of this academic year brings and to finally move that tassel!

Future Plans: I plan to major in criminal justice, minor in forestry, and obtain a conservation law enforcement certificate at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I hope to join the United States Air National Guard and finish a six-year contract in the Guard locally as a conservation officer. From there, I aspire to become a law enforcement park ranger for the National Park Service!

The Amboy Student of the Month is chosen by Amboy High School faculty and a scholarship is awarded by The First National Bank in Amboy.
