The ThunderHawk staff asked the homecoming court about their thoughts on representing their class, what their favorite quote was, if they were involved in any extracurricular activities, and what they do outside of school. The freshmen representatives were Kyle DeNeef and Karina Stork. The sophomore representatives were Max Kessler and Sarah Buresh. The junior representatives were Ben Duimstra and Kaylin DiCesare. The three senior couples were Kyler Rubley and Dani Goodyke, Matt Field and Abi Ediger, and Brad Dekker and Emma VanSlooten. Brad Dekker and Emma VanSlooten were named 2015 Homecoming King and Queen.

Thoughts:  I’ve always thought of class representative as a contest for pretty people. It’s never really been a priority for me. I don’t really think of myself as a pretty person, and the thought that others do is slightly humorous. My automatic thought is that there is some other reason for me being chosen. I’m glad my classmates see something else in me, and I’m glad they have given me this opportunity.

Quote:  “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” -Dr Seuss

Outside of school:  Outside of school is mostly Boy Scouts. That opens doors to a lot of really cool employment and camping opportunities over the summer. For the most part, my life is camping and backpacking. Other than that my life is relatively plain.

Sophomore Reps.:
