Scholar of the Week: Gifted student and dedicated worker

Posted: Updated:

Computers, hockey and drumline are all interests of today's Scholar of the Week.

Kiley Maki is a high school senior who has traits not commonly found in teenagers.

Marching band and hockey are taking up a lot of Kiley Maki's time right now, but he still manages to hang at the top of his graduating class at Marshall High School.

In fact - he scored a perfect 36 on his A.C.T.

But this senior manages to enjoy a little downtime too.

"I like to read, I hang around and watch T.V. too," says Kiley Maki.

Next fall he's planning on heading to college - maybe the University of Michigan...or Saint Olaf or Saint Thomas.

"I was thinking computer science but I'm still looking at my options," says Kiley.

Kiley doesn't just worry about himself - his teachers say he's always willing to help his classmates.

"The thing I respect is he listens, but Kiley's an incredible listener. It's clear he's been paying careful attention," says his drumline director Dan Smith.

All skills that will take this dedicated worker and gifted student far in his future.

Kiley says, "I'd like to stay close, but it's hard to say where I'll end up."

Kiley will receive a hundred dollar scholarship from his local Touchstone Energy Cooperative for being our Scholar of the Week.
