Many of the people lived in tents, dugouts, or covered wagons, waiting for houses to be built. Not all of those who came stayed.
The moment passed. Fulton, J. By a. Best Selling in Nonfiction See all. No ratings or reviews yet. That thinking is pretty widespread. Neighbors say that Stein came from a respected family in town, but that he kept strange hours.
Those who stayed kept the town going. Through tumultuous and difficult times, many hearty souls have brought their ideas, work ethic, and families to grow and prosper. Now, in the beginning of this century, Finney County is still welcoming newcomers and is the fastest growing county in Kansas.
Skip to Main Content. Growth The population soared to over 6, during those boom years from to Garden City was familiar to me, but it was not small town Deerfield, and I would have a chance to let myself physically and mentally grow.
What was it like going from a small 1A school in Deerfield to the junior college level? Going into volleyball and track I knew that it would be nothing like Deerfield.
However, at Deerfield I was really my own competition on a daily basis. I knew that even though it is a junior college I was going to be surrounded by other people just like me, if not better than I was.
So I can admit, it was intimidating knowing I could potentially be at the bottom of the food chain. However, I knew that it would be good for me because it would motivate me to work harder, especially if I was surrounded by these other amazing athletes everyday. Do you hope to continue competing in volleyball and track at a four year school following completion of your sophomore year at Garden City?
If so, do you know where yet? Yes, I absolutely do.
I am keeping my options open to volleyball as I find that this season might bring me something I might want to continue to do at a four year. However, I will only be able to choose one or the other.
As of right now track seems to be the more promising option, as I have been involved in track for a long time and this past season with GCCC was very successful for me. I really want to make sure I choose the right experience for me, and I would like to see what other offers there are awaiting me.

What is your major and what are your career plans after college? I am majoring in Secondary Education.
I want to become a Biology teacher, and possibly double major and become an Art teacher as well. So as for career plans, science teachers are in high demand and after getting my degree I would like to begin teaching and start coaching as well. I think teaching and coaching are my true callings in life, and once I begin those I hope my life and career will be mostly set. Comments about your junior college experience and your experience at GCCC as a whole?
I have had the opportunity to find myself as an athlete and as a person here, and I have always felt welcomed and cared for by the coaches, professors, and staff. I have been able to form some of the best friendships and memories here at GCCC, and that is something I will be forever grateful for.
