Brock Snyder, son of Mary and Boyd Snyder, was named the September Student of the Month by the faculty of Royalton High School (RHS). He has 3 older brothers, Adam, Ryan and Lucas.
Brock is an athlete in basketball and baseball and his basketball coach Mr. Randy Thielges says “Brock has been a 3-year starter as well as captain of the basketball team last year. While being very competitive Brock has the ability to keep his team moving forward with positive talk.
Brock is also involved in different clubs, Student council, NHS, Knowledge Bowl, 4-H, FFA, Spanish Club, Drama, Royal Pride, PBA, Pep and marching band. His Royal Pride advisor Mrs. Kelcie Neumann says he was a huge part of the successful homecoming events, he went above and beyond when it came to planning, setting up, and facilitating the events.
Mr. Brent Lieser, Royalton’s Athletic Director says, Brock is one of those go-to students that is involved in so many facets of the high school experience. Whether it is academics, activities or athletics, Brock is so invested in all those areas. This was evident as he was a selected as a Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) state finalist for the 2017 ExCEL award. This achievement is given to the top 36 juniors from throughout the State of Minnesota. This year Brock has stepped up and helped present at our Senior Social events. Brock put a presentation together on the events and activities of student council and Business Professionals of America. When I think all that Brock is involved in, this quote comes to mind. "If you ever want a special project, new endeavor, or simply a hand, always ask the busiest person you know." Brock is one of those busy yet dependable individuals that will always deliver!
Brock’s favorite high school memory is homecoming week this year, particularly our senior entrance into the Homecoming Olympics and beating the juniors by a point to win the trophy.
Brock’s favorite classes are Spanish 4 and AP Government, which lines up with his favorite teacher who is Mrs. Gruber. He plans on attending a 4 year college and major in Business Administration or Business Economics. His advice to all freshmen students this, attend as many school functions as you can, because looking back, you will find that you will have made many memories there. I would also suggest that you get involved in extra-curriculars even if it means just trying them out, because you will meet many new friends and gain important life skills through them. Finally, if your homework is DUE tomorrow, don’t DO it tomorrow. Procrastination adds much more unnecessary stress … advice from someone who has been there a time or two.
He sees himself in ten years hopefully enjoying a challenging and exciting career and starting a family.
