Hello, my name is Melissa Seljan and I am the daughter of Chris and Laura Seljan. I have lived in Kasson my entire life and attend school at Kasson-Mantorville High School where I will be a senior this year. I am very involved in my community and school participating many activities such as; 4H, HOSA, FCCLA, AFS, band, Student Council, class officer, St. Johns Youth Group, and managing the girls softball team. During the summers I work as a lifeguard and I also co-coach the local swim team at the Kasson Aquatic Center.
One of my most memorable achievements would be being elected the Dodge County 4H Youth Leadership Council President where I work with the other team members and youth to make decisions that benefit over 300 Dodge County 4Hers.
I have chosen to run for Kasson Ambassador because of my love for this community and I would like to thank Nate Gransee from Gransee Construction for sponsoring me on this endeavor. I truly believes that Kasson is the best community to grow up in and I want to be able to represent it and the people who have influenced and supported me through the years.
I am Tanner Paulson and an incoming senior. I enjoy spending my time wrestling, hanging out with friends and family, watching movies and playing a little bit of poker(not addicted). I want to be a positive role model in the community and the Kasson Ambassador Program is a great opportunity for me!
I am Kailey Swarts and I am an incoming senior at Kasson Mantorville high school and will graduate in 2020. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and being very social. I like to stay busy and keep myself occupied as much as I can! I am honored to be participating in the Kasson ambassador program because I really want to take an important role in my community and be more involved in any way that I can. I am so excited to be apart of the ambassador program!
