I am honestly so blown away by the young men and women of our community. One of my favorite things about my job is sitting down with seniors in high school to learn about their interests, plans, and just get to know them! If you can’t tell by the jersey he’s wearing in the above photo, Reese is quite the accomplished athlete! Not only is his High School team (Kettle Moraine) a force to be reckoned with but just take a look at his proudest moment and you’ll be convinced that this guy has some serious talent! Also, don’t miss his biggest accomplishment to date. Impressive!


Oftentimes seniors get a bad rap for having an attitude with their parents but not this guy! It’s something I noticed right away when sitting down with Reese and his mom during their consultation. 100% love and respect! This carried on throughout the session and after which is so refreshing to see. That type of relationship is one to strive for as a parent! 


You might not expect it but I have a few things in common with Reese. Maybe not what’s on his playlist but his favorite thing about our community is my favorite too!


Reese is headed south later this year. Newberry College signed him to play lacrosse in the fall and I’d say they’re pretty lucky!


Congratulations on a fantastic high school career, Reese! I’m sure you’ll be finishing up strong and I can’t wait to watch it unfold for you!
