Senior Brooke Lovgren, 18, is Amboy High School’s December Student of the Month. She is the daughter of Jeff and Mary Lovgren, 51, and, 48. She has a brother, Derek, 23, and a sister, Paige, 22.
Favorite class: Math is my favorite class because it comes easiest to me and I like how it is either right, or it is wrong.
Top teacher: My favorite teacher would have to be a tie between Cynthia Carlson and Liz Scriven. I really like the way Mrs. Carlson teaches math; she has a little analogy or story for each one and they are usually pretty funny and help you remember how to solve the problem. Ms. Scriven also is a fun teacher; I like how she always had a good story to tell each day and she made English class fun, and I looked forward to going to it.
Extracurriculars: Volleyball, basketball, softball, National Honor Society, and Spanish Honor Society. I played on a traveling softball team, The Amboy Rage, throughout 7 summers.
After graduation: I plan to attend college, but I am not entirely sure yet where or what I would like to major in.
Paycheck: Baby-sitting for my younger cousins whenever I can.
Best friend: Kiara Kaleel. We are a lot alike and have a lot of similarities, so we get along really well. We have never even had a fight.
Favorite singer or musical group: Miranda Lambert.
Favorite actor: Reese Witherspoon.
Favorite movie: “Sweet Home Alabama.”
Favorite TV show: “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Spare time: Hanging out with my friends and family, watching movies, shopping.
Favorite food: French fries.
Dream job: I would like to try being a chef, because I love to eat and it would be cool to be like Paula Dean and have my own show and cook amazing things.
Trading places: I would like to trade places with Miranda Lambert, because I have always wanted to be a country singer, and it would be awesome to go out on tour and see the country and be able to play the guitar and be a good singer.
Biggest fear: Walking in the dark by myself.
What makes your blood boil? Losing a game in sports. I’m really competitive and I hate losing.
Hangouts: My friend’s houses, so we can just hang out and watch movies and, of course, eat.
Survival guide: Just go with the flow and don’t overreact about the little things. Also do your homework; it makes class a lot easier.
Useless knowledge: Sorry, Scriv, but probably poetic devices.
I’m in the dictionary next to: Competitive, because I like to try my best to win.
Personal trivia: I hate cats; they freak me out.
Trading spaces: I would go to Europe. I would love to travel all around there and look at all of the major attractions and get to experience all of the different cultures.
Read this: I love reading anything by Kristin Hannah, but my favorite one of hers was “Night Road.” It was so good I had trouble putting it down.
Shout out to: My grandma, Jane Lovgren.
