Best Memories of AHS: My favorite memories of AHS is being involved in all the different extracurricular activities. I have made so many friends through FFA and the spring musical that I wouldn't have made without joining those clubs. I also love the small town atmosphere that our school has. I can get one on one help from teachers, which a quality I will miss once I head off to college.

Future Plans: I will attend St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa where I will study Elementary Education and run track and cross country.
