“After graduating high school, I am attending the University of Iowa, taking prerequisite classes for pharmacy school, hopefully to get into pharmacy school for four years after that and then eventually become a pharmacist.”
When asked about what influenced her choice of college, Romig answers, “I chose Iowa because I wanted to go to a university, stay in state, and it was also the most recommended college amongst the community. My visit there also influenced my decision.”
Romig is part of National Honor Society and Scholastic Honor Society, and also a member of the volleyball and tennis team.
Romig became interested in pharmacy after taking the Des Moines Area Community College health class provided by the high school. “After taking the class, I was immediately more interested in medicines and helping the body. Also, after working in the Hy-Vee pharmacy for three months, I have confirmed my desire to be a pharmacist.”
Although saddened that high school is coming to an end, Romig had fun while it lasted, and is very excited to graduate and start a new, more exciting part of her life.
“My experience at Boone High has been very fun and helpful in choosing the next step of my life.”
Her biggest tips for other students in high school is to try to have as much fun as they can and do things that make them happy, which will lead to a better high school experience.
