Shailyn plans to take a gap year and work at SWI and Blueberry Pines Golf Course, unless she is given the opportunity of having an offer to play softball in college.
Mrs. Kuehn (Angie): Shai is very deserving of this award. I had her in Accounting and even though she was one of the youngest in the class, she had one of the best grades. I could always count on her to help others if I could not get to them. Currently, she in the Business Internship program and works for SWI Interiors. She has worked in many different positions with them and is an invaluable employee for them. I know Shai has a bright future and I look forward to hearing of her achievements!
Mrs. Johnson (Kerry): I enjoy having Shailyn in class. I appreciate her sense of humor and how she is loyal to those she cares about. She also stands up for her beliefs, and she is not afraid to put herself out there. She is insightful and a hard worker. She has many great qualities--congrats!
Mr. Baumgartner (Mike): She is the big wheel, big cheese, big enchilada, head honcho, muckety muck, bigwig, kingpin, grand poobah, top banana in our calculus class. Her classmates are impressed with how quickly she finds the solution to the most difficult of problems. There is no ceiling to her talents in the field of math, which everyone knows is the language of science, and science is the language of the world. So, congratulations to Shailyn
Mrs. Goeden (Marion): Shailyn Pachel might slide under the radar for some because she is one of those quiet leaders. Yet, she goes the extra mile to be the best at what she does. Shailyn is in school early each morning to train for her next season. She is involved in volleyball, hockey, and softball. She trains all year long to be a top player in the section in softball. Shailyn is willing to do the behind-the-scenes work for her team long before the season starts. She is one who will step up and help show a new student around school. Her positive attitude and great sense of humor makes you want to hang with her.
There is a more serious side to Shailyn when it comes to family and her job. She is one of the most mature seniors I know in handling business and home life with an eagerness to learn. Shailyn is a self-starter when it comes to the responsibilities, she handles each day. I appreciate that Shailyn is being recognized for her leadership and the positive role she plays in our school.
