A little about Nicholas...nicholas
Nicholas was selected into the MMEA All-State Band two years in a row and participates in jazz band, pit orchestra, chamber choir, and select auditioned Honor Bands and choirs inside and outside the state of Minnesota. Though science and music courses are Nicholas’s primary subject of interest, he is currently enrolled in College Calculus, College English, College Psychology, physics, band, and choir. Nicholas is also involved in track and field and has recently picked up strength and conditioning for athletics. His favorite memory from these activities was participating in the All-State band in his Junior and Senior years. Nicholas plans on attending either Concordia, Luther, or St. Olaf college in the Fall of 2021. He’s unsure of his career path at the moment but knows he wants to pursue a career in either science or music.

Nicholas’s advice to younger classmates is...to always work hard at the beginning of the trimester; it makes the rest of the term less stressful.

 
 
 
audrey A little about Audrey...
Audrey was a part of the swim team beginning in 7th grade, and a varsity captain of the team her senior year. As a swimmer, she loved the team dynamic and surviving hard practices with great friends. She was in the marching band and jazz band for 4 years and sang in the chamber choir for the past 3 years. She also participated in band and choir solo and ensemble groups, which she really enjoyed. She is a member of DECA and the Unified Club, as well as a captain of the math league team, co-president of the student council, and president of the National Honor Society. Academically, she has taken as many rigorous classes as she can while still making time for choir almost every trimester. Every class she takes and activity she participates in teaches her new skills and facilitates amazing friendships. She plans to attend the University of Chicago this fall, where hopes to major in economics, mathematics, or philosophy. 
 
She advises younger students... to try out anything that seems interesting! I truly believe building relationships with classmates and teachers makes school much more enjoyable. 
 
aaa    Congratulations Audrey and Nicholas!
