TCT’s The Countless Thanks: Day 10 a�� Emily Obermeyer

Over the 15 school days leading up to Thanksgiving, each member of The Central Trend’s staff will release a list of 5-15 people who inspire, motivate, or brighten our days. Today- Day 10- features Emily Obermeyer and her list of nine people who constantly enhance her day.


Lauren Ehrlich – For the endless amounts of kindness

Lauren, you always manage to radiate kindness to everyone around you; every time I see you, there is a smile on your face. You have a willingness to talk to everyone around you. There are some days when I feel like I don’t have friends in a particular class, but you will always go out of your way to talk to me. I really appreciate how much you care about other people.

Grant Bardelli – For the legendary Instagram accounts

Every single time you post a video to your newest social media account, it makes my day. From JV Ranger Golf to JV Ranger Tennis to Goldfish BBA and now FHC Section, every single account is super entertaining. The videos are absolutely great, and I thank you for putting so much time into this area of entertainment for others.

Selina Franovic – For your intelligence and witty sense of humor

Selina, you are one of the funniest people I have ever met. When I am with you, I sometimes cry because I am laughing so hard. Your witty sense of humor is one of the highlights of my day. Aside from the humor, you are extremely nice and always kind. Being able to spend more time with you and become close to you in the past year has truly been a blessing.

Chloe Grooters – For your ability to make any situation funny

Chloe, when I met you as a freshman on JV Basketball, I thought you were one of the quietest people I’d ever met. I was very wrong. You are such an entertaining character, and I love joking around with you. Even when you are in a horrible mood, you always bring humor to the situation. I really admire your ability to stay comedic when things are not going exactly as planned. No matter what is going on, you always bring forward a few jokes to lighten the mood.

Alee Lamica – For staying close friends despite the distance

Alee, where do I even begin? I am so glad to have you as a friend in my life. Even though we are on opposite sides of the country from each other, I know I can always count on you when I need it. Thank you so much for always being there at the right time. I know I can always turn to you for advice or a good vent session. I love you more than words can describe, and I am so grateful for all the memories we have together.

Reece Davis For your unapologetic character

I don’t think I’ve ever met another person like you Reece. You are unafraid to do whatever you want. Thank you for doing crazy things for others, like going out on stilts in a dress in front of the whole school. You never fail to entertain the masses. Thank you for bringing endless amounts of comedy to FHC.

Nisha and Ashlyn – For your dedication to The Central Trend calendar

Thank you, guys, for working so hard every single month to schedule everyone’s stories. You two work so hard through all the craziness of 6th hour to ensure that our website has a wide variety of stories coming out every day. Thank you for working with me to help schedule my stories around my other commitments. I have no idea how you do it but I am so grateful for all of your hard work. I can never express in words how thankful I am for you two and what you do.
