Class of 2017

Believe it or not, the prairie is brimming with opportunity for youth in our rural area. Musicians, artists, athletes…the list goes on. We have some of the finest schools providing a solid education along with extra-curricular activities to round out the experience. Many of these students are also working part-time jobs, perform volunteer work, and participate in other programs such as 4-H along with their studies. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a small part of your high school experience.

The world may seem to be a roller coaster of events, but these examples of the class of 2017 give me hope.

Best wishes for the future and peace out!

Is it spring yet?

Live simply, dream big, be grateful…

A state of mind…

“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.”
— Robert F. Kennedy

The will to succeed…

The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.  ~ Bobby Knight


Enjoy the moment…

A high school athlete will have accumulated countless hours on the bus to and from events by the time he or she is a senior in high school. Players share in the joy or pain that comes with a post-game bus ride that allows the them to absorb one of the key life lessons of sports:  Appreciate and accept the moment…

As an athlete…

As a coach…

As a fan…

As a parent…

It goes by so fast.
