Ricky Burdick was described as well-mannered, a perfect role model and an example of a mature, intellectual high school student.
Comments on Jared included that he is a great student and dedicated worker, very determined and a great improvement as a center on the basketball team.
Katie dropped out of school in the 9th grade but re-enrolled two years ago. She still needs a few credits next year to graduate, but she is sticking to it, a teacher wrote. She is enrolled in a certified nursing program at Western Nevada Community College.
As for the teacher, Schneider was described as an inspiration to students and staff, making subject material relevant and striving to make his classroom better for his kids. He has made organizational and content changes in his senior practical English and “puts in 150 percent time and effort.”
