Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Parker Koos

'22

Parents: Russell Koos and Kara Foster
School(s) attended K-8: St. Teresa’s
Favorite place on campus: During the colder months, the library is a wonderfully peaceful place to spend an off period. Mrs. Willis is always helpful, and the printers have saved my hide countless times when it comes to last minute projects. When it’s warm and sunny, however, nothing beats the swing outside the LPAC.
Activities at Pius X: Cross Country, Track and Field, Academic Decathlon, Students for Life, National Honors Society

What is/was your favorite class at Pius X, and why?

My favorite class has to be Academic Decathlon. I was taught an incredible amount of information about fields I otherwise never would have studied from the many wonderful AcaDeca teachers. The environment of curiosity cultivated by working with the team has driven me to learn more about the world, while growing closer to my faith.

How has your faith impacted your education, or how has your education impacted your faith?

The integration of faith and education is a two-way street. Being able to attend both Confession and Eucharistic Adoration regularly in Theology classes has helped me numerous times when my academic studies get more difficult, and I am thankful I am able to openly speak about my faith in the context of Biology or Literature. I will always be grateful for this opportunity at Pius X to simultaneously grow both spiritually and academically.

What are you most proud of about your time at Pius X?

I am most proud of the spiritual, emotional, and academic growth I have undergone during my years as a Thunderbolt, and I am grateful for all the growth I have seen in my classmates. The last 4 years have felt both longer and shorter than they should have, and we all underwent some tough times, but there is not a single senior, in my opinion, who is not a better person today than they were when they started their time at Pius X.

Where are your plans after high school (college, military, job, etc.)? What do you plan to study?

I will attend the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where I plan to pursue a degree in Secondary Education.
