Before Ashley Tonak even starts her school day, she's helping on the family farm.
"We have sheep and we help do the chores. My dad appreciates that," says Ashley.
And there's plenty of help to go around - with 3 younger brothers and sister.
From a big family to a small school. Ashley will graduate with 17 other classmates.
"I love a small school. You have better interaction and things you're learning about," Ashley explains.
After high school Ashley says she'd like to run for state FFA office and maybe head to SDSU.
"I'd really like to be a trainer. Either that or a teacher - one of those two areas," says Ashley.
Which, according to those who know her, should be no problem.
"Ashley's gonna be successful at whatever she does," says her Principal Laura McGirr.
Codington-Clark Electric Cooperative is giving Ashley a $100 scholarship for her effort in school. That's a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
