Celia has played volleyball freshman through junior year and is currently in the women’s acapella at Turner known as “Here Comes Treble.”
Outside of school, Celia is currently employed at Subway. She loves to volunteer for Edgerton’s Thresheree with the Marine Corps League every September. Celia has been volunteering since she was nine and has donated all of the tips gathered each year.
Becoming involved with the Marine Corps League was one of the best decisions she has ever made. Celia has attended their Marine Corps Ball the last three years and has been gratefully honored to sing the national anthem for them.
Celia’s future plans are to attend the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater at Rock County in the upcoming fall to earn her associates degree. After that, she plans on transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to major in psychology and minor in criminal justice.
Celia is thankful for this opportunity to share her high school accomplishments and would like to specifically thank the Beloit Rotary Club.

Allen has participated in AP Calculus AB and AP Physics. He loves the sport of baseball and has played since sophomore year.
Outside of school, Allen is involved with volunteering with a group called Respite Night. Allen helps watch and play with children with disabilities.
