Senior Emil Gjerde Boe is an exchange student at Ellinwood High School.

Student Library Assistant Hytomi Nuno will be focusing on different seniors throughout the year to spotlight, and this will be featured in our Check It Out column. Today’s Senior Spotlight is Emil Gjerde Boe.

Emil is a senior at EHS. His family members are mom, Line, and dad, Kim. His host family consists of Mark and Signe Cook and Matthew. “The Book Thief” is Emil’s favorite book. His favorite quote is, “Fear regret more than failure.” Weights is Emil’s favorite class, because he likes to work out. His favorite sports are football and basketball.

Emil’s advice to underclassmen is to try their best.

We wish Emil a great year in his senior chapter.
