Lauren Ashley Flieller, 19, graduated from Poth High School as valedictorian in 2010.

“Becoming valedictorian of my class was a goal of mine since I was in preschool,” Lauren said. “Yes, it was hard work and it took a lot of dedication throughout the years, but the feeling I had when it was announced I was valedictorian of my class was well worth it.”

Lauren is currently attending the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, majoring in biology and following the pre-pharmacy track. In college, Lauren is a member of the Honors Program, Pre-Pharmacy Association, and the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. She is involved in community-service projects both on- and off-campus.

“All in all, I think it’s important for students today to realize that doing well in high school can open many doors as they move on to college,” Lauren said. “Being the ‘smartest’ is not nearly as important as perseverance when it comes to being successful.”

In her spare time, Lauren likes to play the piano, read, swim, and spend time with her friends.

Emily Bridgett Flieller, 17, will graduate from Poth High School this year as valedictorian. Emily is considered the “free spirit” of the family. In high school, she has been involved in sports, band, Student Council, Science Club, 4-H, and many more activities.

“Earning the title of valedictorian was no easy accomplishment for me,” Emily said. “But I never gave up and all of my studying definitely paid off.”

Emily also has been accepted to the University of the Incarnate Word, where she plans to major in biology; she plans to attend the School of Optometry.

Emily’s advice to those still in school is to continue to work hard.

“High school is when you develop the habits you will take with you to college and with you for the rest of your life,” she said.

Their father, John Flieller, said he could not be happier or more proud of his two girls.

“We have always asked our children to do their best, because then there are no regrets about what could have been at the end of the day,” John said. “I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments and the choices they have made in their lives up to this point.”
