Shelby High School teacher Amy Johnson, the school’s representative at the contest, said Rehnberg did extremely well under pressure. “The judges took quite a while deliberating over who the winner should be,” she said. “I was impressed with how well Michael kept his composure.”
During his speech Rehnburg expressed his aspirations to earn a doctorate degree and become a meteorologist. He has been fascinated with the weather since age four and hopes he is one day able to notify the public of dangerous conditions in advance and ultimately save lives.
Heidi Steeves, Rehnburg’s English teacher said, “Michael works so diligently on his writing and was reticent to enter the contest at first, yet he practiced, revised, and was a tribute to what hard work and revision can do for one when writing and speaking.”
