As a 16-year-old, Eryka Pluff landed a job hosting at Hastings' Green Mill Restaurant and Bar. After working her way up to the catering team lead position, she strove to take shifts at one of her favorite venues: the then-fledgling wedding site Hope Glen Farms in Cottage Grove. "She was so excited for us, and she was such a hard worker," said Paula Bushilla, co-owner of Hope Glen Farms. "She said, 'If there's ever anything I can do to help, I would love to' — and that's why we thought of her later."

As toddlers, Mark Boggess's grandkids left toy cars at his grave. They placed a miniature 1974 Dodge Charger — which he drove before he died at age 33 — next to a pretend tow truck scene, as if he had stopped to help.

You may have peaked in high school — and that's a good thing, Woodbury High School graduate Andrius Adomavicius said to his peers at the school's graduation ceremony on June 2 at Aldrich Arena in Maplewood. "We can bring about even higher peaks if we use our potential energy to keep working towards our goals," he said. "The peak we're at now is merely a small one comapred to the Everests we are capable of reaching. So, Class of 2019, to anyone who says we've peaked here, just say: 'Yeah. We've peaked. But we haven't Everested.'"
We asked Woodbury High School graduates to tell us about who helped get them through high school. Their varied responses included teachers, parents, friends — and themselves. Read more about area graduating seniors at the links below:
