In honor of the 2018 Farmington High School graduation, we’re highlighting a few (of the many!) outstanding seniors from this year’s graduating class. Today’s Senior Spotlight is: Erin Hoy!

During her time at FHS, Erin has been a part of National Honors Society Executive Board, LINK Crew, Youth Teaching Youth, 4-H Mentor Program and Web Genius. Erin also acts as the student representative for 360 Communities.

One of her proudest accomplishments is her above 4.0 GPA she earned throughout her high school career, all while remaining active in after school work and activities!

“It has taken quite a bit of studying—my friends can attest to this—but I am proud that I have taken the time to put my studies first,” said Erin.

Last year, Erin was awarded the Association of Minnesota Counties 4-H Leadership Award and the Dakota County Public Health Achievement Award through the 4-H Mentor Program.  Erin was also named Student of the Month this past November.

Erin’s NHS instructor, Ms. Beckman, says she can tell Erin's spark is caring for other people.

“She has a true passion for volunteering. She always goes above and beyond what is asked of her. I even remember in 9th grade whenever something needed to be done, I could rely on Erin and that has only grown over the past four years. I know that she is going to make a huge impact on the world with what she decides to do next.”

This fall, Erin will be heading to the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities to study biology. Her goal is to complete her studies in pre-medicine, and then apply for medical school after undergrad. While she is at the U, she hopes to have a study abroad experience where she can work on becoming fluent in French.

Erin is inspired to be a doctor because of her time working at Trinity Care Center in high school.

“This job has really opened my eyes to people in need. I want to help people in my community, and hopefully someday, all around the world! I want to get out in the world and help people - even outside of a clinic. If I can be an active member in my community and become a doctor, that would be my dream!”

Advice for future seniors:

“Life is short. My best friend told me one time, “forget fate, just DO it!” We cannot always rely on the idea that that fate decides what will happen in our lives—that just gives you the opportunity to leave your dreams without a fight.  Do you what you love and if you want something in your life, go and get it!”
