Lake Andes senior is a once in a lifetime student

Posted: Updated:

Shopping and going to movies are a couple of her favorite things to do - but Casandra Hazuka rarely has time for either.

A busy class schedule, two jobs and no study halls put this student among our Scholars of the Week.

She takes wrestling stats and is really involved in her youth group.

She also helps tutor other students.

"She's most proud of N.H.S. for their recognition of their leadership with collecting clothes for kids in need. Cas took a big interest in that," says guidance counselor Dave Krull.

And as with many Scholars of the Week, she's handling a full course load.

Two online course, accounting, math, history and government.

English too.

And that's not all.

"I work at the store and at the nursing home since I was 14, so 4 years," says Cas.

And this scholar doesn't have a studyhall.

"She gave it the most everyday. She's like a bull dog. When she clamps on she's good," says Krull.

Cas plans on going to M.T.I. to study business and accounting management.

A few years down the road she hopes to be a physical therapist.

But every once in awhile Cas manages to find some free time.

"Listen to music, hang out with friends. Vacation at my aunt and uncle's ranch, ride horses there," says Cas.

"She's outstanding, a student like that comes around once in a lifetime and you're glad it's your student," says Krull.

Cas is getting a hundred dollar scholarship from the Charles Mix Electric Association - a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
