Tanner is the son of Jerry and Cheryl Friedemann.

“I would also like to give a shout-out to my amazing siblings Brittany, Chase and Teagan who have been my support team throughout high school,” Tanner wrote in a short description of himself.

Tanner has been involved in many student organizations during his time in high school, including Visioneers (art club), yearbook and FFA. In addition, he has served as president, treasurer and sentinel in student council; vice president in Spanish club; and treasurer in National Honor Society. In forensics, he competed at districts two times and made it to state once.

“While partaking in all of these clubs, I have always tried to participate in activities around the school, such as homecoming week and getting pied by my classmates. While I wasn’t involved in any sports, I always attended the girls and boys basketball games to show my support and also help with videotaping and tracking the statistics of the game,” Tanner wrote.

After graduating Tanner plans to attend Mid-State Technical College in Stevens Point to pursue the IT network specialist program, a two-year field of study in applied sciences.

“Throughout my years at Granton, I have had the privilege to participate in clubs like National Honor Society, FFA, varsity club, Spanish club, yearbook and forensics,” Dolorosa wrote.

She has also participated in both track and field and cross country.

“I have maintained high honors throughout my high school career and have taken several college courses. Although my schedule is really busy, I have found time to work at the Granton pool on weekends and during the summer as a lifeguard,” Dolorosa wrote.

After high school, she plans to attend Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids to earn an associate’s degree in criminal justice.
