Share a special memory of your time at Vinton-Shellsburg? Really didn’t have any good memories. I did like the fact you could join the soda group and you didn’t get judged.

Describe how your time at Vinton-Shellsburg has impacted your career/life in a positive way. It really didn’t impact my career. It impacted my life teaching me that small communities are great places to live if you grew up there.

What advice would you give students who are interested in going into a field similar? Don’t settle for the bare minimum. Go for your dreams. Don’t let anyone tell you can’t. Everyone has a dream and should strive for it.
