8, 1988, Natalie Ann brightened the lives of her parents Dave and
Marilee. Her younger sister Kendra and her two dogs, Greta
and Lucy, have since been added to the family.
Natalie has kept very busy throughout high school. She was in volleyball and basketball as a freshman. She has also participated in softball and has been a cross country manager. She was in golf the past three years, and she plans to play golf again this year. Natalie was the class secretary her sophomore year and is a member of the National Honor Society. She was a basketball cheerleader last year and a football cheerleader this year.
Music and drama are big parts of Natalie’s life, as is demonstrated by her involvement in these activities: band, jazz band, choir, swing choir, jazz choir, musicals and plays. They have all contributed to Natalie’s success as a musician and actress. Natalie was voted Most Musical, Most Dramatic, and Most Likely to Become Famous by her classmates, as well.
Natalie is a member of the Rock Rapids UMYF. The classes she is taking this year are grammar, today’s family, journalism, calculus, psychology, and government.
Natalie loves to watch the movie Now and Then and the television show Friends, listen to Broadway show tunes, and read the book Wicked. Her favorite color is red, and she likes to eat sour cream. For Natalie the best part of the school day is fifth hour – lunch and choir.
Natalie’s future plans include attending MSU at Mankato and being in the musical theater department. In ten years, she sees herself in New York City on Broadway with a Tony Award or two.
Natalie’s most memorable moment in high school was the late night cast parties with Karli. Her words of wisdom for underclassmen are, “You’ve got what you’re given…it’s all how you use it.” If she could spend one day with anybody, she would choose to spend the time with Jimmy Fallon and Sue Johansen because “Sue Johansen knows everything!”
Natalie’s many successes with her musical abilities here at Central Lyon are sure to lead her to a successful future pursuing her dreams.
