Rodeo rider wants a career in pharmacy

Posted: Updated:

Today's Scholar of the Week loves to dance and ride her horses.

And with her academic record, Jenna Donnelly tells us she's excited to see where life takes her.

"I like to ride in the cornfields and I really enjoy that," explains Jenna.

Meet Jenna Donnelly, award winning rodeo rider - and also our Scholar of the Week.

Jenna rides in regional rodeos in Huron and Watertown and has qualified for state every year.

"My goal is for nationals in Wyoming," says Jenna.

Accomplished in the rodeo ring - and in the classroom.

This dance team captain wants a career in pharmacy and has applied to the University of Iowa, Drake and SDSU.

"I didn't want to be too far from home, but I didn't want to be USD close," says Jenna.

Even with a class load full of advanced and honors courses, Jenna is also a member of the cross country team, National Honor Society, student council and the school newspaper.

"She balances hard work with ability. Never been an issue at all for any academic challenge," says Principal Travis Aslesen.

Her teachers hope Jenna brings those attributes back home after school.

"She's someone who can make a community better just like she's made our school better," says Aslesen.

"I just hope I'm happy with whatever I'm doing," says Jenna.

Union County Electric Cooperative is sending Jenna a hundred dollar scholarship for her effort - that's a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
