Seven Layer Bars

Naomi Kolhoff is in this year’s graduation class at Princeton High School. Kolhoff originally lived in Coon Rapids until about her fifth grade and then moved to Princeton.

She enjoys playing soccer, cooking, baking, and hanging out with friends. She has been playing soccer since eighth grade and became a star soccer player at PHS. She will be attending Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Ill., near Chicago this year with a soccer scholarship. Kolhoff is interested in coaching and the business field, and also hopes to become a professional soccer player. Her top two choices for a state to live in are Minnesota and Colorado.

Her experience here has been good, she says of Princeton and its schools. Her summer plans are to work at the Dairy Queen in Zimmerman and prepare for college. She offers the recipe for one of her favorite desserts.
