 Alaina Thern - Immanuel, Greenville 

Alaina plans to go into welding following graduation from FVL, and eventually hopes to get into aluminum welding and welding fire trucks at Pierce Manufacturing. 

Favorite Bible Passage - "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:11-13

Best memory from FVL - "All the life lessons and stories Mr. Krause taught me. An example of this was when I was explaining to him how I need to figure out what to do for the rest of my life without making the wrong decision. He stopped me and said that this wasn't my life decision, but rather the next phase of my life's decision."

Teacher/Coach who made an impact - Mr. Krause. He's the one who gave me the confidence to continue welding in the future. I came into the class thinking I'll just try it out for fun and an easy A. I never thought I'd be anywhere good enough to be in College Metals, but because of him, I had the confidence to take the bull by the horns and take the hardest welding class to improve my skills."

One thing people may not know about you - "I show cattle and goats at county fairs and other livestock shows all over the state." 

God's blessings, Alaina!
