Your senior year in high school is something most will remember for the rest of their lives, especially those last couple of months. For the graduating class of 2020 these times will be remembered much differently.

That’s why Star 98 has started a Senior Spotlight, meant to highlight seniors all across East Idaho and their hard work. We will recognize High School and College seniors, share their accomplishments and goals for the future, and give them the recognition they so richly deserve. If you’re interested in featuring your senior, just fill out this simple form below and be sure to include a picture and short message to your senior.

You have no idea how proud I am of you. Though this is not how we imagined graduating as 2020 seniors, I know you will continue to push yourself through the rest of the school year and do amazing things. You are one of the most caring and kind hearted individuals I have ever met and I am grateful that you have been a part of my life for the past 2 years. I love you to the moon and back over and over again, B.

What a way to end your High School years! You have great goals and are a hard worker! You are very determined. You are funny and love to make people laugh but you also include everyone. I’m sorry you can’t play baseball one more year and make lasting memories! Continue with the drive you have to reach your goals. Your dad and I are very proud of you!

We love you and are so proud of your tall red headed awesomeness. The best life advice probably comes from your favorite shows, “pivot….pivot… Pivot!” And “I wish there was a way to know that you are in the good old days before you have actually left them“ Time to go out and make some new good old days 🙂
Taesha Garner
Taesha GarnerCentury High School
Taesha you have always been the beacon of bright light in all that you do. Rather it was volunteering in tge community as Miss Gate City’s Outstanding Teen, or being an exemplary leader as Cheer Captain of your cheer team, or helping your brothers out, or being the best Auntie to your nephew. You have done it all with style, grace, compassion, and kindness. You have started and lit a magnificent path for yourself to do great things and although the end of Senior Year is not what you had hoped you have been a true beacon of light for future generstions to come. I can not wait to see how you will light this world on fire with grace. We love you Taesha . Love mom, yiur brothers, sister , grandma and grandpa and EZ.

You did it, and the class of 2020 will surely go down in history! Your senior year has been unique to say the least and has left us all feeling a little incomplete.

We are so proud of you and thank you for being such an easy going, fun loving part of our lives.
Love Ya – Mom, Dad, Nate & Levi

I don’t even know where to begin, you have accomplished so much and I am so proud of you. From being one of the Cheer Captains for the last 2 years at Century, and being an All American Cheerleader, I don’t know how many times, to being Athlete of the month, and then Cheerleader of the year. I could fill a page with your accomplishments. I know this ending is not what we had planned but you have been so graceful through it all. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you, I know what ever it is that you will be graceful, beautiful, funny, smart, and will tackle it all. Good Luck my sweet girl and we will always be DBacks!!! I love you!!!

Teagan is our youngest daughter. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 5 years old. During this time she has overcame so many obstacles, both emotionally and physically, pertaining to this disease. A few special nurses inspired her to acknowledge it takes a special person to care for others. Because of those nurses, she has chosen to pursue a nursing degree. We are so proud of her!

2020 was year of learning. Learning new people, teacher, schedules and people. I have loved every minute that I’ve had at MV. It brought people into my life that have changed me for the better. It has given me the opportunity to play Volleyball at the collage level. I’m so excited for the next chapter in my life!!!
