Ryan Roth

Ryan is the son of Richard W Roth and Jeri Proulx Roth and Sheri Vinion Roth and David Allderdice.

Some words from Jeri:

Ryan Roth calls Big Sandy his home. He has grown up on his family ranch doing all the things ranch kids do, including riding dirt bikes and horses. He is very athletic and enjoys spending time at the lake, on the ski hill and at the skate park. Ryan is witty and has the ability to bring humor into any situation. He has one sister Jessica, 4 Step-brothers, and one step-sister. Ryan has always been extremely focused on things that matter to him such as his grades and basketball. His love for basketball has played a huge role in leading the Pioneers to success. Ryan has plans to attend Montana Tech this fall.

"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."

-Babe Ruth

Oh Ryan, Mr. Competitive, in fact I believe at a parent-teacher conference in third grade I told your parents that you were a little uber- competitive (they both blamed each other by the way which only proved that you came by all the determination honestly :)) You are better than even you realize at so many things and your drive and determination to be the best will serve you very well in the future.

Ms. Wolery

Amanda Cline

Amanda is the daughter of Ty Cline and Charla Terry Moffitt.

Some words from her Mom:

Amanda is a beautiful person with a love for life. She has always enjoyed sports, dance, music, photography, and the outdoors. From daycare dress up, mud holes, and ballet/tap to basketball and volleyball she loves to be around people, especially friends and family. I'm excited to see what the future holds for my baby girl. Her plan, for after high school, is to attend MSU Bozeman with her focus on physical therapy and psychology.

"The question isn't who's going to let me; it's who's going to stop me."

-Ayn Rand

Amanda- I picked this quote for you Amanda because I felt it described you very well. I have seen this determination from you in many ways but especially on the court in Volleyball and Basketball. You don't let much stop you and you keep fighting until you achieve your goal. What a great asset that will be as you start your future. Good Luck Amanda, don't let anything stop you!

Ms. Wolery

Erin Taylor

Some words from her mom:

Erin is the daughter of Layne and Wendy Taylor and the sister to three brothers. Erin grew up with a love for music, reading, agriculture and family.

She started playing the violin when she was 7 and has developed that talent over the years to becoming a member of the Great Falls Youth Orchestra and to teach beginning violin lessons in our community.

Erin has always enjoyed animals and agriculture. She has raised rabbits, sheep and steers to show at the local county fair in 4-H and FFA. She loves going horseback riding and will join the boys during hunting season (if it is still warm out).

Erin is definitely the peace maker in our house. Growing up with all brothers has taught her to be strong but also kind and loving.

Erin's plans for next year are to serve an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When she returns she plans to go to BYU-Idaho to earn a degree as an English teacher along with a minor in music.

It has been an honor and privilege to be Erin's parents! She has brought so much joy, peace and happiness into our home. We are so excited to see what she will do and become.

Erin...We Love You!!!

"Set out each day believing in your dreams. Know without a doubt that you were made for great things."

-Josh Hinds

Erin,the girl with the beautiful smile, I picked this quote for you because I know without a doubt that you were made for great things. Your calm and humble manner will take you far in life. We have been so blessed to get to know you these last two years and I am so excited to see all the great things that life will bring you. Good Luck sweet Erin!

Ms. Wolery

Jeremiah Genereux

Some words from his mom:

Jeremiah Michael Genereux is the second born child of Darin and Lisa, and brother to Jasmine and Josalynn.

Growing up the middle child, especially between two sisters, has made Jer's life full of adventures, interesting experiences, and memories too many to count. Since he was a little boy, Jeremiah has always loved to travel and see new places. The longer the trip, with many hotel stays along the way, the better. From time spent with our family of five, to holidays, birthdays, camping trips, and sports events together with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, family has always been and continues to be important to Jeremiah.

Jeremiah has a huge love of sports and spent many years playing basketball and running track as a Pioneer. He is proud of the success the basketball team experienced this year, and looked forward all year to a final track season. As someone wise once said "Time moves on and the future is yours to see." In the fall Jeremiah will begin his next adventure majoring in Journalism at the University of Montana.

"Be bold, be courageous, be your best."

-Gabrielle Giffords

Jeremiah- I picked this quote for you because, for me, this quote describes you perfectly. You are bold and courageous and I think you always strive to be your best. Sometimes I think we believe that bold people are loud but you are bold in your quiet, detailed, serious manner. You are not constrained by what the world thinks you should be but rather bold and courageous in who you want yourself to be. I am always in awe of how well you do that. Being bold and courageous will bring you much success and I am so excited to see all the great things you do!

Ms. Wolery

Everett Works

Everett is the son of Dan and Rhonda Stovall-Works. He has two older brothers Tanner and Zach. Everett loves music and acting and has performed in many plays, such as Missoula Children's Theater and the Community Productions over the last two years. Everett is planning to go to University of Missoula and pursue a degree in theater arts.

"The old rules are crumbling and nobody knows what the new rules are. So make up your own rules."

-Neil Gaiman

Everett- You are a special kid, I have always been impressed with your ability to be yourself in every situation. That's why I picked this quote for you, because when the old rules are crumbling and we have to make up new rules, that will be so easy for you. You already do that, you follow the rules of who you are every day and your confidence and determination to be who you are will make you a great success!

Ms. Wolery

Elijah Wagoner

Some words from his mom:

Elijah Gabriel Joseph Wagoner is the son of Mary and Nathan Merrill and Wade Wagoner and is the equally loving and endlessly antagonizing big brother to Evalina, Henry and Dorothea.

Elijah has added a depth of wit and humor to our lives that we could not imagine being without. We knew we had our hands full when, at 4 years old, he knocked on his 1 year old sister's head and said "it's not ripe yet", as though he was checking for the best melon. He has been tormenting his siblings ever since, although his love and adoration for them all overshadows the endless wedgies and middle fingers that he somehow accidentally taught his 6 year old sister and who now has no fear to deliver when he absolutely deserves it.

Elijah loves to ski, perhaps more than any other thing. He has skied all over the state of Montana, preferring to skin up a mountain, rather than riding a chairlift. A blown ACL in his knee his junior year kept him off the slopes for a winter and brought about near heartbreak.

Eli decided, after being adamant that he would always hate the sport, to start playing basketball his sophomore year and showed the most incredible dedication to learning a sport long after his peers had started playing. He put an incredible amount of time into the gym and that ability to devote time and effort to anything will pay tenfold as he walks through life.

Starting when he was almost too young to physically put the lego bricks together, he has created the most astonishing Lego creations from scratch, at one point even building a complete replica of the plans for the family house remodel. He takes this early love of engineering and structural design and plans to attend college for a career in welding, although he has not made any definitive plans for which college yet. Elijah will be working on his parents farm this summer, helping to run all aspects of the farming as well as completing years worth of welding projects that no one else wants to do. He also developed a love of woodworking and construction and has been and continues to be a huge help in an ongoing house remodel he has spent too much of his childhood enduring.

Navigating through a life that has thrown multiple punches his way, he has come out as an intelligent, empathetic adult that has the ability to accomplish anything that he truly wants to do.

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."

-E. E. Cummings

Elijah- I picked this quote for you because courage is something I think you have in abundance, and it shows in the quiet, polite manner you have with everyone you interact with. I don't think life has always been easy for you but you have faced it bravely with the courage that things will get better and that there is more to the world than what is here and now. I think you've had the courage to be who you really are all along, which is more than most people figure out in their whole life. You're going to do great things Elijah Wagoner, I can't wait to see what they are!

Ms. Wolery

Caedon Tielking

Caedon is the son of Don Tielking and Carissa Sargent and Scott Sargent.

Some words from his mother:

Amanda Cline

He's got a big heart, he's fun loving and loves to learn (especially about things that he likes). He loves helping Scott and Tyler out on derby cars (welding). He loves his dogs. And he loves his family. When he graduates he will be shipping out and going into the Army this July. He was actually accepted into the Army Rangers. We couldn't be prouder of this kid and how much he has grown.

"Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not."

-George Bernard Shaw

Caedon- What a polite young man you are. There was never a day that I asked you how you were that you didn't also ask how my day was and then genuinely waited for my response. I picked this quote for you because I thought it totally described how you see the world. You are always asking why not and all of those dreams you dream will be easy to bring to reality because of your ability to see the things that others don't. Good Luck Caedon!
