Mia Storz was nominated by faculty as a class of 2020 senior to know.

I definitely miss seeing my friends in person, but I have spent a lot of time on FaceTime and keeping up with my friends online. I finished painting a mural on the side of my desk as well as painting canvases for my friends. I enjoy spending time outside with my sisters and going for bike rides and hikes.

One part of high school that I will miss the most is my time spent on the girl’s cross country team. There I met some of the most fun people to be around and made some of my favorite memories. Being on the team for four years, I’ll never forget our mentally challenging workouts, getting lost on road runs, countless inside jokes, or singing really loud on the bus rides (especially the State meet).

I am most proud of the growth I’ve made over the past four years. My freshman year I decided to get involved in as much as a could whether that be the arts or sports. I’ve made so many relationships and memories with people who I never would have met if I didn’t pursue new things.

I think I will be remembered as a good student who was involved in many different activities. My friends know they can always come to me with stuff and would tell you I am a very loyal friend and a good listener. My favorite times at PR were spent laughing with my friends, and I hope to be remembered as someone who was up for anything and made people smile.

In the fall I will be going to Illinois State University. I am looking forward to meeting new people, joining clubs, and of course, working out in their really cool fitness center. I am most excited to study abroad in Spain my sophomore year!
