Wolf of the Month-Raquel Lieurance

Raquel is an 18-year-old Senior on the High Honor Roll. Raquel names Mrs. Sue Heath (5th Grade), Mrs. Sherri Ramseier (Language/StuCo), and Mr. Patrick Brown(Ag/FFA) as her all-time favorite teachers. Raquel’s favorite subjects are History and Agriculture. Raquel stated that some of her hobbies and interests outside of school include, “being outside, playing with my animals. I love taking photographs, along with spending time with family and traveling.” Raquel names her mom (Diana), along with Mrs.Crystal Richards as her role models and states, “My mom is very hardworking, kind, and I admire how much she has overcome. I admire Miss Crystal because she is always positive and pushes everyone around her to be the best version of themselves. She helped me in a time of need and never gave up on me.” Raquel shared that a “Fun-Fact” about herself is, “I won Grand Champion in 4-H photography at the Colorado State Fair two years in a row!”

When asked to discuss an accomplishment that she is proud of, Raquel responded, “I am proud of becoming the Idalia FFA Chapter President and earning a spot of the District IX officer team. Serving as President has given me the opportunity to gain leadership skills and influence other FFA Members in a positive way.” When asked to discuss a future goal, Raquel stated, “I plan to attend West Texas A/M University in Canyon, Texas and earn a degree in Agricultural Education along with becoming an FFA Advisor.” A piece of advice Raquel offers her classmates is, “Get involved with organizations/clubs from the beginning. They provide you with so many opportunities and experiences. Becoming a member gives you a sense of belonging and you learn so many new things.”

Mr. Johnson states, “Raquel is just an absolutely amazing student and person. In the seven years I have had the privilege of knowing Raquel, not a day has gone by without her smiling and telling me Hi or good morning in the hallway. Like everyone, I’m sure Raquel goes through challenges and obstacles in her life, but I’ve never seen it affect her friendly personality. She is reliable, consistent, composed, super friendly, and always extremely polite. I have great respect for how she conducts herself each and every day. Raquel represents everything that an Idalia student should and is extremely deserving of her Student of the Month Recognition. Great Job Raquel!
