Senior Salute: Whitney Elbers
Whitney Elbers is the daughter of Kurt and Lanette Elbers of rural Steen. During her years as a Patriot, Whitney has been very involved in many activities including volleyball, basketball, president of the FFA chapter, and 4H to name a few. This year Whitney has taken on several PSEO classes in addition to pre-calculus, ag, anatomy, and supported Ms. Vanden Hoek as a teacher's assistant. Whitney's favorite school tradition "was actually going to school!" That would be our preference, too!
Along with studying and being active in various activities and clubs, Whitney still manages to find time to work at the Tuff Home. Whitney plans to continue her work experience as a CNA to pursue a nursing degree and eventually be working in a hospital. Whitney notes that her mom has been the most influential person in her life and point of inspiration!
