Today we recognize Melba Murken, known all over Iowa for starting the first SEP drill team in 1965, a tradition that remains strong even today! The RhythAMetteS started with just 11 women and has since grown to over 50 dancers who have earned national titles. Melba started teaching Jr. High-Sr. High girls PE in 1965, retiring in 1998 after 33 years of service. She was inducted into the SEP Hall of Honor in 2019. Other awards she's earned through the years include:
*Jr. Women’s Club 1995 Friend of Education Award Winner
*1995 Director of the Year and Drill Team Directors of America Lifetime Honorary Member
*Iowa State Drill Team Directors of America Lifetime Achievement Honoree

SEP Senior Grace Rosenboom encourages this year’s senior class not to wish away the time we have left in high school. "Our time here at Southeast Polk is going to come to an end soon, and it’s important to take advantage of the opportunities we are given, enjoy every moment with our teachers/classmates/friends and make great memories before we move on to the next phase of our lives. Although COVID-19 and the pandemic can make this hard, there is no time for regrets!"
