Student Bios:

Brevin Jegerlehner:  I am the son of Betty and  AJ Jegerlehner, and I have one older sister, Brittni. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports, hanging out with friends, and attending Wisconsin football and basketball games.
At Lakeside Lutheran, I have been involved in football, basketball, and track, as well as the National Honor Society and Student Council. I also sing in A Cappella choir and have participated in math meets. I am one of the valedictorians of my graduating class.
Last summer I represented my school at Badger Boys State, and I am a member of the Rotary Youth Leadership Association (RYLA). In my community, I have participated in Adopt-A-Highway, caroling at nursing homes, and volunteering at Twice is Nice Resale Store in Jefferson. One week in the summer, I also help at Warrior basketball camps for younger students. One of my favorite volunteer experiences has been going with Pastor Clark Schultz to churches and conferences, talking about how to get teenagers involved in the church.
After high school, I plan to attend Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee to major in Sports Management or Sports and Exercise Science. Both now and in the future, I want to be able to make a positive impact on people in my community, and I look forward to learning from Rotary members who have so much to share.
My name is Calla Borchert. I am the daughter of Tim and Sarah Borchert. I have an older sister Quinn, who is a freshman in college and a younger sister who is a freshman in high school. I enjoy science and business classes and have been a high honor roll student each year at Lake Mills High School. I love animals and have two cats at home- C.C. and Emmy. I enjoy playing volleyball both competitively on my club and school team, and for fun with my friends in my backyard or at the beach. I also like game nights with my extended family and spending time with my friends.
 I have been fortunate to have been a four year varsity starter on our school team. I am a captain this year and expect to have a fun competitive season this year. I love my team and we share a passion for volleyball and being there for each other on and off the court. Not only do I love volleyball but I’m also involved in several clubs. I have been active in  Spanish Club (9-10), Interact Club(11-12), GSA (11-12), Jefferson County Connections (JCC)(11-12), Environmentalists of Lake Mills (ELM) Club (10-12), and Ski Club (12). I am excited to be part of National Honors Society this year as well. This club organization will also provided many opportunities to serve my school and community. I look forward to being a leader the underclassmen and to show them how being a hard worker and good decision maker helps contribute to a successful high school career.
I have had many opportunities to get involved at Lake Mills high school. I have tried to find a good balance between academics, athletics, confirmation classes, and service events to benefit my community. I have also worked for the recreation department and as a child care provider. I have assisted youth events for Academy Volleyball and Revolution Volleyball Academy all the years of high school. I have also assisted with the mini L cat volleyball camps and the YMCA volleyball league here in Lake Mills.  I am involved with my church’s Youth Group and have helped with making and selling pies, raking leaves in the community, assisting at Advent craft workshops for the elementary students, and participating in youth masses. I also worked a bit at the school store, The Paw. I could sometimes be found cleaning up trash along the highway as part of a service organization at school, called ELM club.
My plans are not solidified for next year yet, but I plan to pursue the education and training for a  career in dental hygiene. I will decide if I will attend a four-year program or two year program after the application acceptance process is complete. I am very interested in a healthcare profession and I am passionate about oral health and how it contributes to overall health and wellness. The dental hygienist also forms relationships with patients and can be involved in communities in which they work, which I find very appealing.
Rotary Club members are great leaders and professionals in our community making Lake Mills a better place. I would be honored to be part of such an accomplished service organization. It would be a rewarding experience to be part of a meeting and be inspired by the Lake Mills Rotary. I look forward to continuing to be involved in my community after school. Rotary is a an organization that I can be involved with that will impact local and universal improvements. Thank you for this opportunity to be selected to represent your club.
Carly Strauss
Parents: Bruce and Tammy Strauss
  1. This year I’m a senior at Lake Mills High school. I am the daughter of Bruce and Tammy Strauss. I also have many siblings. I have four sisters and one brother. Recently I acquired two brother-in-laws as well. Three of my siblings are older than me and my twin sisters are Juniors at Lake Mills High school. I have many different hobbies and interests. I enjoy riding my horses and have competed at different events over the years. I also show dairy cattle at different shows throughout the country. I come from a dairy farm just outside Lake Mills. I have been showing animals since I was very young. I work on my family’s dairy farm and have since I was about eleven years old. I am also very interested in sports and fitness. Involvement in various sports is something I have also done since I was very young.

Busy Barns Volunteer  – Petting barn and Hay slide
  1. I have been a member of 4-H since I was in kindergarten. I have done many community service activities through my club. I have volunteered at many area dairy breakfasts including the EMS breakfast to raise money for the EMS in Lake Mills. I have volunteered at “Culvers & Cows” the past 4 years to raise money for our club and celebrate June dairy month. I have volunteered at Town & Country days. Each year our club does trick-or-treat for the Food pantry. I have also helped out in the past with “Keeping Ag in the Classroom”. We go in to area schools and give a presentation about agriculture to young children. We had expanded the program to include a day in the life of a dairy cow which included bringing a calf to the school for the children to see. I am a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Lake Mills where I attended grade school. I have been a part of their youth group in the past.
  1. When I graduate high school this coming spring I would like to go to continue my education to become a large animal veterinarian. I have always had a love of animals and science is an area I am interested in. Currently I am looking into Iowa State or the University of Massachusetts-Amherst to pursue my undergraduate degree in Animal Science.
  1. Being selected as a Lake Mills Student Rotarian will give me the opportunity to meet and thank the members of the Lake Mills Rotary Club who help make our community a great place to live, work and grow up. Lake Mills has so much to offer to community members and I believe much of that is due to organizations like the Rotary.  My great grandfather Donald Strauss has been a long time member of the Rotary club and this will also allow me the opportunity to get a better picture of the Rotary and his involvement through the years. Being a Student Rotarian will be an asset for my future as it will help to prepare me for my life as a college student and one day professional in my community.
