You may have easily seen this senior
sitting on her lifeguard chair, up on stage, or being crowned
homecoming queen this past fall! Kristin Clasen was born on March
16, 1990, to Harlan and Vicki Clasen and Kristin also has one
Kristin has been seen on the gym floor and up on stage during her high school career. She has been involved in volleyball, basketball, golf, bowling, softball, dance team, student council, large group and individual speech, concert band, choir, jazz choir, and also takes part in the fall musical. She was also voted Best Hair and Best Personality in the senior’s best of class.
This honor student is not only involved in school, but also in the community. She attends the Holy Name Catholic Church where she is a part of CYO and performs in the River Valley Players Community Theater productions. This past summer, Kristin was also a participant at the Iowa Girls’ State.
This year, the NHS inductee has loaded her schedule with hands-on classes such as textiles, homes by design, today’s family, and single survival because she plans to major in family and consumer sciences next fall at SDSU.
Kristin’s favorite color is yellow, and she loves the t.v. shows Desperate Housewives and The OC. Some of her other favorites include chicken alfredo, Spongebob Squarepants, and the book The Truth About Forever.
Looking forward, Kristin sees herself having a teaching job in the area of family and consumer sciences; however, looking backward, her most memorable high school moment was going on the Mexico trip, the band trip, and being crowned homecoming queen. Kristin offers these words for the underclassmen, “Go out of your box. Go out for things that you would never do. You will make a lot of different friendships that will last a long time.” If she could spend one day with someone living or dead, she would spend it with her great grandma Mary. “She had so many stories of her childhood in the old country and it would be nice if I could talk with her again,” said Kristin.
This active senior is sure to leave her mark because she has put so much of her time in extracurricular activities.
