Do you participate in any activities related to your major/minor? Internships? Work Study? Other?
I work in the Writing Center on campus, which goes along with English Education.

Have you had any unique opportunities, in or out of the classroom, while you’ve been enrolled at Mayville State?
Being involved with the Cometeers is the most unique opportunity I’ve had at Mayville State, along with the Pay It Forward Tour. I also enjoyed being a part of the Larson Leadership Program as a freshman.

What has been your greatest moment as a Mayville State student?
Starting the Cometeers organization and everything that goes along with it.

What does personal service mean to you?
Personal service is similar to discretionary effort, meaning going beyond one’s self. This includes giving yourself up for the benefit of something higher than yourself.

What are your plans after graduating from Mayville State?
I plan to teach high school English and coach football. I am undecided on where, but am considering Colorado or Wyoming. I would like to teach in a medium-sized town, so it’s not too big or too little. My final hope is to start a volunteer program at the high school where I teach, and possibly surrounding high schools, to teach students the importance of volunteering.
