Deadline Approaching for Parents to Purchase Senior Tributes to Honor Their Graduate in the Yearbook
For I know the plans I have for your, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
My name is Samantha Luehr, and I am a senior at Wood River Rural High School. My relationship with Jesus Christ defines who I am as a person. I both value and love the fact that Jesus is Lord of my life. Without Him, I would be utterly lost. My family holds a very special place in my heart as well. My father, Dean, is a pig farmer that has a passion for Christ and for providing for his family. My mother, a physical therapist, creates a loving home with her continuous care, and she makes the most delicious food! I have four siblings: Matty, the oldest, attends Concordia University and is getting married this April. Elle, my younger sister, loves to talk to people, and she is currently a junior in high school. Gideon, a freshman in high school, is growing like a weed at 14 years of age. Joshua, a fifth grader, adds life and drama to the family with his never-ending energy and volume. Madoc, my black, white, and brown Welsh Corgi, completes the family with his adamant love for chasing birds (I also have a ton of cats).
As a student of Wood River, I am very involved in many different clubs, sports, and organizations. I play three sports: volleyball, basketball, and track. I am involved in FBLA, National Honors Society, FCA, Freshman 7, Band, and the All School Plays and Musicals. For four years I have been the FCA leader of the Leadership Team, and I have had the fortunate opportunity to help the Freshman form healthy habits through the Freshman 7 program this year. For three years, I have been the Stage Manager for the All School Plays and Musicals, but this year, I plan to step out from behind the curtain and act on the stage itself. Last year, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Youth Leadership of Tomorrow Program (YLT), and I graduated this program in June of 2016 in the Class 19.
After high school, I plan to attend Concordia University with my sister Matty. I am undecided on what I would like to study, but I am confident that I will find my passion in college. While attending Concordia, I plan to play on the Concordia Women’s Basketball team.
Finally, I enjoy working on the pig farm with my Dad. For the past two summers, I had the opportunity to work full time alongside my Father on the farm. Although many tasks were both physically and mentally challenging, I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences that I had on a day to day basis. Pigs are now my favorite animal. My favorite part of farm work is being able to see the glorious sunrises and sunsets come and go with their blazing color. Ultimately, I am ready to take the next step in my life, and I am excited for the opportunities and experiences that God has for me in this new world of college.
My name is Taylor Rae Lambrecht, and I am currently a senior at Wood River Rural High School. I am the daughter of Michael and Cheryl Lambrecht and the sister of Mallory Wagoner and Clinton Lambrecht. I have lived on a farm just north of Wood River my whole life. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the lake, creating DIY Pinterest ideas, and playing with as many animals as possible. Throughout high school, I have participated in basketball for two years and volleyball for four years. I am a member of FBLA, NHS, Student Council, Letter Club, and Freshmen 7 Mentoring. After graduation, I plan to attend the University of Nebraska at Kearney and possibly major in elementary education.
Hi! My name is Emily Loy and I’m a senior at Wood River High School. My Parents are Scott and Carrie Loy and I have one older sibling, Chris. I am involved in numerous activities both in and outside of school; these activities include, FCA, NHS Vice President, FBLA, 4-H, 4-H Council, Band, YLT, Student Council, Cross Country, Basketball, and Track and Field. Once I graduate, I plan on attending Concordia University while majoring in Elementary Education and receive my coaching endorsement. I also plan on continuing my track and field career while there.
I have been involved in Cross Country from my sophomore to senior year. The Cross Country team this year has truly become a family to me. Not being able to run with them next year will be something I miss the most from high school.
Track & Field
I have been involved in Track for four years; my events include the 100m dash, 100m hurdles, 300m hurdles and the 4x1 and 4x4 relay. I have qualified for the State Track meet in both my sophomore and junior years as well as earning a state medal in the 4x100 relay both years and breaking the school record in that relay. I will definitely miss running with and against all the great athletes on the team as well as having a great coaching staff to perform for throughout high school.

For three weeks, the personal finance class was given $200,000 fake cash and were sent out to "buy" five or more stocks to invest in. They had to make a spreadsheet and keep track of when they bought it, how much it was, the profit, and the loss. After three weeks, they recorded how much they gained or lost. The students used the MSNmoney website to check the stock prices each day.
