On May 26, 1993, Cal and Cheryl Mans were blessed with their son, Tanner. His family also includes his two older brothers Josh and Nick, and his younger sister, Hailey.
During his high school career Tanner has been involved in many Central Lyon activites. These activities include: wrestling one year, golf one year, track one year, football two years, cross country two years, choir for four years, band two years, musicals two years, Jazz Band II one year, jazz choir three years, and First Priority one year.
His senior year schedule is very busy. These classes include: band, choir, human anatomy, sociology, grammar, Composition I, introduction to business. His favorite subject is English. He is also involved in Senior RCYF at the First Reformed Church, Praise Team at the First Reformed Church, and has been a carryout at Sunshine Foods for the past four years. This summer he also was a preschool crew leader for Vacation Bible School.
Tanner enjoys reading the book “One Thing you Can’t Do In Heaven” and listening to any type of music. He likes watching the movie “Fast Five,” and his favorite show is “How I Met Your Mother.” His favorite color is blue, and he likes his mom’s taco casserole the best. Tanner’s most memorable moment in high school is just hanging out with his friends because there was never a dull moment with them.
When asked to state words of wisdom to the underclassmen, Tanner said, “Set an example. You never know if there is someone looking up to you.” If Tanner could spend the day with one person, he would spend it with his late uncle Don. It has been three years since his death, and he meant a lot to him and Tanner misses him dearly. In ten years he sees himself married with maybe a few children and managing a fitness/wellness center in the area.
Tanner’s plans for the future include studying exercise science after high school; he is undecided what college to attend. Good luck in the future, Tanner!
