Scholar of the Week: Groton senior is on the run

Posted: Updated:

Time management has proven to be an important skill for today's Scholar of the Week.

A Groton senior makes the most of every day.

It's Eric Millbrandt's goal to do the best he can at everything he does.

Eric Millbrandt is on the run.

"Running gives me time to think about whatever."

He's been on cross country team at Groton High School for six years.

"To come out and do what he needs to takes a lot of dedication," explains his cross country coach Adam Franken.

"I'm involved in youth group. Having God in my life helps," says Eric.

It's not easy staying at the top of both academics and athletics.

Eric says, "It involves late nights with homework."

He plans to go to college next fall and study engineering.

"I guess I want to create something useful for everyone."

Which he'll no doubt do.

Coach Franken says, "He's an exceptional kid and very deserving of this award."

Northern Electric Cooperative is sending Eric a hundred dollar scholarship for being our Scholar of the Week.

That's a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
