Choir, Wapetonics, drama, and student council have kept Olivia Hoffman busy the last four years at Wapello High School. A lesson she has learned and wants to pass along to the underclassmen is to “Please, Please, Please don't wait until the last minute to do homework, it will bite you in the [you know what] if you wait.” Olivia says that Mr. Murray has had the biggest impact on her education. She says, “When he would talk in class he didn't sugar coat anything, I really appreciated that because that meant he saw us as young adults and not children. But also because he gave me the ability to 50 words per minute with his very long and gruesome slideshows.” Olivia is the daughter of Jerred Hoffman & Laresa Carpenter. After graduation, she plans to explore her options in the workforce to find something she is passionate about and pursue her education after she finds it. Best wishes, Olivia!

“Be involved and try as many activities as possible; you never know what you’ll end up liking.” Words Emma Schoonover followed during her high school years at WHS.

She was a member of FCA, National Honor Society, FFA, and student council. Mrs. Spielbauer is Emma’s most influential teacher because, “She took into account how we wanted to learn in her class. She was always curious about our lives and how we are doing. I always asked a lot of questions and she would always take the time to fully explain how something worked.” Emma’s parents are Curt and MIranda Schoonover. Emma plans to attend St. Ambrose University to major in biology/pre-med and minor in psychology. Best wishes, Emma!
