From the beginning of the year, Audubon was named the Bank of Iowa Traveling Cup trophy winner for class 1A. As a student body we excelled in activities such as athletics, fine-arts, and academics. Audubon was number one in the state for doing well in all of those activities. When mentioning his favorite memory, senior Trevor Smith didn’t hesitate to say that his favorite memory was ‘ beating a powerhouse of a [football] team of Council Bluffs Saint Albert’s for the first time since 1979.”
Junior Maddison Hagedorn said her favorite memory was, “Prom decorating coming to an end!” Many juniors spend the majority of the year planning the senior prom. For students like Madison, It can be stressful.
Another major activity that recently played a part in our school was the pennies for puppies. Audubon raised over $2,400 for this fundraiser. We raised enough money for 5 puppies. This showed how Audubon students weren’t afraid to donate a few extra bucks and sponsor a program that will impact many people’s lives.
The next huge accomplishment is completing yet another year of school. There were ups and downs, good times and bad times, but no matter what happened, Audubon Wheelers stick together and push through to complete the final goal. Audubon Wheeler Senior Tyre Vokt said, “My favorite part about my last year in high school is how it prepared me for college and getting out on my own.”
This year has been great and out of all of the things we’ve won and accomplished, by far the best memory for me was the times shared with all of the students here in Audubon. Our School will forever be a Wheeler Nation.
