Senior Spotlight by Bethany Parvin Kimberly Kay Henriksen is the daughter of Daryl and Donna Henriksen. She has a sister Katrina, 21, and a brother Kevin, 13. Kim's whole life has been spent at Wakonda � just where she wanted to be.
"High school has been a blast," said Kim.
She has learned from the mistakes she's made. Kim has had a wonderful high school career. She says she wouldn't change a thing about it. The most memorable thing for her was beating Centerville to win districts her junior year. She'll miss playing in games and supporting the boys more than anything else.
Her dad has showed Kim that hard work is the way to get things done. "He has always had faith in me and has been there for me through the good and the bad," Kim said.
Kim's first crush at Wakonda would have to be either Dave Johnson or Sam Johnson. Her favorite teacher memory is when she and her classmates were in the sixth grade and they had put mouthwash into Mrs. Flynn's coffee for April Fool's Day.
If she could will anything to her underclassman, she would definitely will her "sneakiness" and "brains" when it comes to "getting glue" from the teachers' lounge!
Kim plans to attend Dakota State University where she is receiving a basketball scholarship. She has participated in basketball, volleyball, band, peer helpers, and teens-in-action all four years of her high school experience, with track the last three years. Kim has had some great memories during her time here at Wakonda.
Her hard work ethic, friendly attitude and the smile that's always on her face will be missed.
