Thank you to Ms. Natalie Burnett for being such an interactive and inspirational leader for Eagle River High School. Thank you to Mr. Thomas Klaameyer for being the best teacher, adviser and mentor a student could ask for. Thank you to Tanner for being my "partner in success" and my best friend. Thank you to Katie and the Goldberg family for being so welcoming and willing to share your knowledge. Thank you to Gina, Lian, Michael, Timo, Tom, and Tori for being adults I can rely on when need be. Thank you to my parents, Alexander and Yulia, for letting me be alive in the first place. Thank you to all my friends and family for helping me become who I am today. And, thank you to the Eagle River High School staff and the Eagle River community for providing such a supportive environment in which to learn and grow up.
