What advice would you give to younger students in Albert Lea?

Don’t be afraid to dream big. Put your eyes on the prize, go for it and work hard! One of the most important things is to listen to teachers, parents and all adults around you. They can help you out big time because they have more experience. If you are struggling, remind yourself why you are doing it and what will come out of it. You just might benefit from it a lot. Lastly, always remember to show Tiger spirit and show people what being a Tiger is all about!
