Sondee exudes hometown pride. This love of her small, close-knit town has driven her to give back, and you will frequently find her organizing local events to both celebrate and support the community. She serves as president of four different 4H subgroups and chapter reporter for Future Farmers of America. Sondee is captain of the basketball and track and field teams, and has worked part time throughout high school. Unlike many of her generation, she holds true to her values and is a leader for Idaho Drug Free Youth. Sondee is humble, but knows the value of her leadership. She states: "My contributions may seem small at times, but to someone on the receiving end, it can mean the world." Sondee, I have no doubt that many, many people have been touched by your service. From Wesier, Idaho, Sondee will attend Northwest Nazarene University to study criminal justice in the fall.
