Paige Hock

Hock

Junior Paige Hock enjoys singing, occasionally dancing, and listening to punk rock and screamo.

When Hock was in seventh grade, Fremont’s Colorguard did a floor show at Rocky Mountain and she thought “it looked cool”. She tried out as a freshman, made it, and has been part of Colorguard ever since.

“It just kind of stuck,” she said.

One day during practice, she did a strip toss – throwing her flag in the air – and wasn’t able to catch it.

“It landed on my nose, cut my nose, gave me a bloody nose, and two black eyes,” Hock said.

But that didn’t stop her. “I finished the song and then I went to the bathroom [to get cleaned up].”

Most of her time is dedicated to Colorguard, but she loves it, especially “getting out there and the adrenaline rush of performing.”

Jessica Harper

Jessica Harper

Junior Jessica Harper loves playing soccer, softball and hockey. However, an accident over the summer put these sports on hold.

On July third, her and her brother drove their four wheeler over the side of a mountain and fell about 200 feet. They were both life flighted in critical condition; Jessica received several fractures and burns.

In addition to being hurt, Harper was upset because she missed the Fourth of July celebration, again.

“Every time I go to Yellowstone, that’s where [the accident] happened, I look forward to seeing the fireworks,” Harper said. “I’ve gone three years in a row and I’m either sick or injured every time.”

She started the school year in a walking boot but her and her brother are doing well and Jessica will try getting back into sports after physical therapy.

In the meantime, Harper enjoys watching Netflix and reading any historical fiction or poetry she can “get [her] hands on,” especially Edgar Allen Poe.

“[Poe] is dark,” Harper said. “But he’s really interesting to read.”

Josh Allen

Sophomore Josh Allen loves downhill mountain biking and playing the bass drum.

Being in the school’s Marching Band, he attends practices at six o’clock in the morning, four days a week and competes on Saturdays.

His favorite superhero is the Flash because “he has a cool power and serves people”, but, not being an avid fan of running, Allen doesn’t want to actually be the Flash.

“I want to name my son Barry after the Flash,” Allen said. “My brother is probably going to beat me to it though.”

Kaden Scoffield

Senior Kaden Scoffield enjoys hunting and rodeo when he isn’t busy pouring concrete with his dad. For him, near death experiences are something to shrug at.

Once while hunting, he hiked in too far on top of a mountain and had to stay the night in single digit temperatures without a sleeping bag. In the morning, he couldn’t even walk until he rubbed his feet to circulate blood.

“I think it’s just normal, but it’s probably not everyone’s idea of fun,” Scoffield laughed.

Meagan Zwick

Zwick

 One brother collects swords, the other collects knives. But senior Meagan Zwick loves to collect older books. She often finds her books in thrift stores.

When Zwick isn’t reading, she enjoys cooking and taking care of her dogs, steers (boy cows), and her cats, one of which is named Zelda.

 She is also an active member of the school’s service club under the direction of Mrs. Doney and Mr. Premont. The service club meets before school to plan projects.

 Before Thanksgiving, Zwick participated in a food drive with the service club. She also took part in beautifying the school’s flower beds. Zwick has enjoyed her time in the club and is glad it was created.

 She loves to serve people and learn from books, especially the classics.

 “There are a lot of lessons you can learn from [books],” Zwick said. “For example, in the book Emma by Jane Austen, I kind of pulled out from it that we need to be kind to everyone but don’t try and make others what they’re not.

Kiera Nicholson

kiera

Kiera Nicholson is independent, focused, motivated, and a bit of a perfectionist. Even though she knows that turning in assignments late presents a problem, she refuses to turn something in before she is entirely happy with it, especial when it comes to art.

Four AP classes and a difficult family situation fuel the stress in Nicholson’s life. Her AP classes take up the majority of her time and keeping up with them is a struggle. However, her desire to climb ahead of the game and out of high school has her balancing three online classes, Math 1050 and the occasional 12-hour day at Lagoon this upcoming summer.

Regardless of her tension-packed life, Nicholson makes time for things she enjoys doing,  like “people watching” and seeing movies.

If she had the attention of the entire world for 10 seconds, she would get a translator and post her phone number.

“I can’t think of anything right now, so just text me and I’ll say something inspirational.”

Brandon Johansen

Brandon Johansen

On April 7, Brandon Johansen experienced his first day at Fremont. He was a Clearfield Falcon, but after not “really going to school,” it was decided that he and his twin sister would move in with their dad with the hope that living in the “middle of no where” would fix the issue.

Johansen enjoys being a twin and gets along with his sister most of the time, as long as they “aren’t arguing about stupid little things”.

He also loves hanging out with friends, playing video games and the color green. Being a fan of classic music, his favorite artists are Journey, AC DC, and Billy Joel.

Johansen believes that with “all this violence and stuff in the world,” people only need to hear one thing.

“Love eachother and be happy,” he says.

Caden Christensen

Caden Christensen, like most students, enjoys listening to music. But his love for music goes beyond listening. Four years ago, a friend of his dad taught Christensen how to play the drums, and he has loved it ever since. He joined the marching band this year as a junior. Christensen and a few of his friends started their own band, the Infinite xyst, and even though the group has yet to perform, they look forward to doing it soon.

Christensen says that playing drums is a part of his life, not unlike his most appropriate pseudonym, Beard.

“Yeah, that’s my nickname,” Christensen said with a chuckle.

Berklee Lerohl

Family, sports, and listening to music are a few of the things that make sophomore, Berklee Lerohl, happy. She’s a member of the sophomore volleyball team, the sophomore and junior varsity basketball teams, and she plans to join track this spring. To her, music is all about meaningful lyrics, which is why she favors alternative artist, Ben Rector. What’s the best thing about Lerohl? Her favorite color.

“Purple! Yes I love purple! I have like, a favorite purple pen I take everywhere and people try to steal it. And when they die I have to buy another one. I’ve had like, four or five pens in two years, and purple pens are hard to find.”*
