Alyssa Heckendorf -- Immanuel, Greenville
Favorite Bible Passage: "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
Alyssa plans on attending Martin Luther College next fall to study elementary education, as well as urban education and Spanish. For Alyssa, many of her best memories at FVL revolved around sports, including playing on the varsity volleyball team and talking to Mr. Granberg--her "Brewer buddy"--about baseball every day.
Best memory from FVL: "Beating Xavier, a high-ranked team, in 5 sets to win a Regional championship for volleyball my senior year."
Teacher/coach/staff member who made an impact: "Coach (Wendy) Bixby is an exceptional role model for me. She taught me the sport that I love to play and has always been a great spiritual leader for me."
What Alyssa's most excited about after graduation: "I am just excited to experience every new adventure, especially with all my future classmates going on with me to MLC!"
Good luck Alyssa! #FutureFriday
