Mrs. Caroline Joos (2019 Graduate)
Favorite Bible verse: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11
Words of wisdom:
"Do your best, don't be afraid to ask for help, and get involved. Heritage is the best way to do that and will prepare you for a new journey after high school."
After graduating from Heritage Academy in 2019, Caroline spent her summer working at Hy-Vee in Columbia, Missouri. She enrolled at State Tech in Linn, Missouri in the fall of 2020 to receive training as a Physical Therapist Assistant. The program is two years in length. Following graduation she will seek a job as a Physical therapist.
Caroline remembers her years at Heritage with fondness, saying, "The school has so many wonderful memories for me -- spring formal, class parties, and the variety of "out of school activities". She points to the close friendships she experienced with classmates as her favorite memory. She adds, "The teachers and staff really care about you and want you to succeed."
Her first year of college came with a variety of challenges including new friends, new teachers, and a new school. "Heritage really prepared me for a new life" after graduation. She looks forward to returning to Heritage in the future to visit or to help out in some way. Heritage is a "home away from home for me".
