2018 Senior Essay Memory Winner

Evelynn Horwath- Faribault

Evelynn wrote a wonderful essay about a time when she was helping on the family farm with the hay. One of the horses got stuck in the muck as they got out the horses were spooked and were running towards the barbed wire fence. Evelynn had to decide if she was going to jump by didn't want to get hit by the hay rack or run over by the tires. As she was about to jump the rake stopped moving and she fell into the grassy meadow. What a great memory and so glad that she was unharmed after that event.
