Rachel Dobb:

First of all, I’d like to thank my wonderful family for their unfailing support.  I would also like to thank my friends for having my back.  These last four years have been a great four years that I’ll never forget.  I’m currently undecided on what college I’m attending next fall, but I plan on double majoring in English and Spanish.  Good luck Class of 2018!

I would like to thank my family for pushing me to be the best person I can be.  I would also like to thank my friends for supporting me along the way.  Lastly, I would like to thank the staff at Reeths-Puffer for providing me with the opportunities to thrive and succeed as a student.  Reeths-Puffer Schools  have given me the chance to become a driven, hardworking person. I plan to take these traits with me to the University of Michigan in the fall.  Best of luck and congratulations to the Class of 2018!

Hannah Hilliker:

The memories and success I’ve had here at Reeths-Puffer will last me a lifetime.  Most importantly, I need to thank my parents for making sure I had everything I needed to succeed; my siblings and friends for always having my back; and God for guiding me in this journey.  This fall, I will be attending the honors college at Trinity International on a soccer and academic  scholarship.  Good luck Class of 2018!

David McHugh:

High school at Reeths-Puffer has been an experience I will never forget.  I’ve had countless opportunities to grow as a person, friend and leader, whether it’s through soccer, basketball, track, NHS, IMPACT, or my classes.  I am truly thankful for my family, friends and teachers for always pushing me to be better than I thought I could be.  After graduation, I plan to attend either Wheaton or Hope College to study biomedical engineering.  Good luck to all of the Class of 2018 in whatever you do.  Go Rockets!

Lindsay Richardson:

I want to give a big thank you to my family and friends for motivating and supporting me for all of these years at R-P.  I’m also extremely grateful for the things I have learned by being a part of cross country, track and NHS. Next year, I plan to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering at the US Coast Guard Academy.  Good luck and keep working hard, Class of 2018!

Lindsey Bos:

I’d like to thank my family, friends and teachers for always supporting me. They’re the reason I’m the person I am today.  Reeths-Puffer will always hold a lot of special memories for me whether it’s in the classroom or the band room.  Next year I will attend the University of Michigan to pursue a degree in  mechanical engineering.  Congrats Class of 2018 and Go Rockets!

Cody Jonaitis:

I am so incredibly thankful for all of the opportunities that I have received as a student at Reeths-Puffer. I will forever cherish the memories I have made both in the halls and on the field.  In the fall, I will be attending the University of Michigan to pursue a degree in civil engineering.  Congratulations and the best of luck to the Class of 2018!

Haley Ruiter:

I am extremely grateful for all the opportunities and memories that Reeths-Puffer has given me. More importantly I want to thank my family, friends, teachers and coaches who have provided me with endless support, encouragement and always pushed me to do my best.  This fall, I plan to attend MCC for two years then transfer to a university where I will study pre-med.  Congratulations and best of  luck Class of 2018!

Emily Weessies:

The time I spent at Reeths-Puffer has been the best with many great memories.  I would like to thank my teachers for helping me succeed, my brother and my sister for making me look like the better child, and finally my parents for always supporting me and giving me the most love a child could get.  I plan on attending MCC with the Muskegon Promise Scholarship then transferring to a four year university to study pre-med.  Good luck on your dreams, Class of 2018!

Kaylynn Moschke:

I am incredibly grateful to my friends and family for always supporting me and encouraging me to do my best.  I’ve made so many wonderful memories at Reeths-Puffer that I’ll always cherish.  Next year, I will be completing the Early College program and will earn my associates degree. I plan to transfer to GVSU and earn a master’s degree in pre-medical then transfer to the University of Michigan to complete the doctorate program for psychiatry.  Congratulations Class of 2018!  We Did It!
