This week's Alumni Spotlight is Chris Brady '00. What was your favorite memory: I have lots of great memories, too many to count, but if it wasn't for Mr. Bickel standing up for me in 8th grade I wouldn't have had any. Thank you Mr. Bickel! Advice for today's students: Just when you think your down and out, keep pushing! Chase your dreams, they won't chase you! What did you do after high school: After high school I became a mechanic, today I'm a small engine mechanic and a goat farmer.
This week's Alumni Spotlight is Jared Kangas '01. What was a favorite memory from high school: Although I'm far from an actor, one good memory from high school was in fine arts with Mr. Taylor. He asked me to be in the production of Fiddler on the roof and it was a great experience to step out of my shell, although it was my first and last acting experience! What was your favorite activity: I really enjoyed playing football and being around my friends. Advice for students today: Learn a trade, not everyone has to go to college, there are plenty of successful people without a college degree. What did you do after high school: I completed the utility technology program at Alpena Community College. I currently work for Cloverland Electric as a foreman at the Dafter Line Department.
Reminder the staff is in training today, no school today (10/9/23) for students, see you on Tuesday!
This week's Alumni Spotlight is Jillian LeBlanc '05. Best memory: My best memories from high school were likely after school while we waited for games or late practices we’d always head over to Summers Captains house play euchre non-stop while eating a BLT pizza from Pure Country or cheese bread sticks from Odds and Ends restaurant. It’d be the same group of us just hanging out being kids and laughing over silly events that occurred that day. Favorite class: When asked my immediate memory was in Anatomy and Physiology, we were dissecting the cats and I sat at a table with Derek Harter, Bob Lohff and Christina Ganga. Derek Harter gutted his cat like it was 8 point buck as soon as he got the blade in his hand. Christina and I still laugh over that memory. Advice for students-: It’s okay if you don’t immediately know what you want to do out of High School. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself to complete the normal “milestones” society pressures us into thinking is living. Find yourself, travel, try new activities that intimidate you. Eventually you’ll find out who you’re meant to be and it doesn’t have to occur when you graduate. Have fun with it life is so quick and the ride can be incredible. After HS: I enrolled into college immediately after High school and went to Central Michigan for a semester. I quickly realized I wasn’t ready to be far away from home and returned to Lake Superior State University. I graduated with my Bachelors of science in Nursing. I’ve had a wide range of jobs during my career as a Registered Nurse and now you’ll find me at My Michigan Medical Center, in Sault Ste Marie, PACU department, I wake patients up after surgery and it’s by far my favorite job I’ve had as a nurse.
Rudyard Area Schools has a scheduled professional development day on Monday (10/9/23), no school for students.
This week's Alumni Spotlight is Shawn Bennett '92! What was your best memory from school? I really enjoyed ALL of high school from wonderful teachers to all my friends. What was your favorite class/activity? I enjoyed any class with Mr. Bickle because he would talk about hunting with us as soon as the lesson was laid out. I loved running track and singing in the chorus. What advice do you have for students? Don't rush to get through it! Enjoy those years. They might seem to drag by but it will be over so fast in the great scheme of life. Done right, you will have a lifetime of great memories. What did you do right out of high school, and what do you do now? I worked at the Kinross Co-op in the produce department. I moved out west to Idaho and began a career in Forestry and Arboriculture. Now I'm a certified arborist and the co-owner of Grace Tree Service.

There are often more ways to get involved than you realize. What did you do after high school: Right out of high school I joined Michigan Tech's "Audio Production & Technology" program, which covers a wide variety of technical sound fields including: sound design for film and theater, acoustics, music production, and more.
