2018 Staff Spotlight - Jake Kraemer

Its the big ten for Jake Kraemer. Jake is finishing up his senior year at Deerfield High School.He's  been hanging out a lot and spending time with family and friends as high school comes to a close and as he prepares for his AP Exams. He's sad that his DECA career is over, but happy that he finally placed first at State in my category, Hotel and Lodging Management.

Jake will be headed off the Duke University after camp. He spent his first season as a Blue Devil Basketball fan, and while he's still not over the Kansas loss, he is excited for the White Sox season. At camp you'll find Jake teaching log rolling and arts and crafts.
