2024 Senior Spotlight: Tanyn Larson
On August 19, 2005, Bob and Kelsey Larson were blessed with their second daughter, Tanyn Raye Larson.
Tanyn’s siblings are Taylor, who graduated in 2020, and is 21 years old; Tyce Larson, who is an 8th grader, and is 14 years old; and Taytum, who is a 4th grader, and is 10 years old. Her grandparents are Rick and Lorie Larson of Creston, and Bill and Georgia Klassen of Lindsay. Her family wouldn’t be complete without their pet dog, Luna.
Tanyn has been involved in many activities throughout her high school career. She has been involved in FCCLA for 6 years, One-Act for 4 years, Volleyball for 4 years, Track for 4 years, Journalism for 4 years, Yearbook for 4 years, and National Honorary Society for 2 years. Tanyn is also involved in Leigh Youth Advisory Committee and Zion Lutheran Church Youth Group.
In Tanyn’s freetime, she enjoys working at her family farm.
Her proudest high school accomplishment is making it to state in volleyball for all 3 years, and hopefully a 4th this year.
Tanyn’s future plans are to attend Northeast Community College for their nursing program. After Northeast, she will transfer to UNMC to get her RN degree.
The three best words to describe Tanyn are friendly, motivated, and fun.
If Tanyn won a fortune in the lottery, she says she would build her dream house and never work! She would also like to visit all 50 states and go skydiving in her lifetime.
Tanyn would especially like to travel to a beach because she loves warm weather and exploring new places.
Tanyn’s most embarrassing moment was when Mr. Jeff Bachman made their class play a review game, and she didn't want to play because she didn’t know many of the answers. When Mr. Bachman asked her, “Who is the 3rd president of the United States?”, she was already annoyed that she had to play the game, and responded with “I don’t know, Thomas Edison?”
Her biggest pet peeves are when people chew and breathe loudly.
In 10-15 years, Tanyn sees herself with a family, working in a hospital with her RN degree, and married. By this time, she hopes to have 2 kids.
When asked who Tanyn admires the most, she said her grandma Lorie Larson. “She has always been there for me and never has a bad attitude. She has taught me that life is better when you have fun and enjoy the little things.”
Her advice to underclassmen is, “Enjoy your time and have fun! Time goes by fast and enjoy the things you enjoy in high school while you can.”
We wish Tanyn the best of luck and lots of success in her future endeavors!
