On a cold winter day a baby boy was born into the world by the
proud parents of Roger and Deb. The date was December 30, 1984 and
the baby boy was Rick. Rick has three sisters: Melissa,
Megan, and Miranda. He also has two brothers, R.J. and Robert. His
pets are a dog, Barky and two cats, Speed and Bump, descendents of
Road and Kill.
During Rick’s high school career he has participated in football, basketball, and a senior class officer, and officer at large in FFA. This year Rick is keeping busy with government, calculus, Grammar, business marketing, Accounting, PE, and business law. Some of the honors he has received are Tom Lemming’s Iowa top 10, Northwestern Iowa Review Teen, all district football, and top five fruit sales.
Some of his favorites are steak and potatoes, and the TV show The Simpson's. Rick’s dream is to drive around in his multicolored van to cool off after running around in gym class for forty-five minutes. I asked him if he won a trip somewhere, where would he go and with whom? He told me “I would go to Metropolis with Superman and Catwoman.” Talk about a weird way to spend your time.
His future plans are to go to a four-year college and get a job. He sees himself in ten years living in a big city with a nice car.
His most memorable moment in high school was the Missouri Valley football game. All in the same night, they won district, met some interesting cheerleaders, and on the ride home the bus broke down.
Some words of wisdom he would like to leave with the underclassmen would be “Be cool, stay in school.” Good luck Rick with all your future plans.
