Scholar of the Week: Senior keeps a healthy balance

Posted: Updated:

A lot of students get great grades - but it can get a little trickier when you're balancing great grades with a lot of school involvement - and working two jobs.

Somehow today's Scholar of the Week makes it all fit into the 24 hours a day she's given.

There's no question if our Scholar of the Week Brittany Cleveland is ready for college.

"I'm excited to meet new people, it excites me," says Brittany.

This Sisseton High School senior is involved in dozens of activities, carries a loaded class schedule and keeps a sky high G.P.A., but that's not all.

"Not only is she a star student, she also has jobs so you have to be organized or you would fail at something," says teacher Sharon Prendergast.

So how does this star student stay sane?

Brittany explains, "Sometimes I take a couple hours. If you don't, you don't get anything done anyway."

It's safe to say Brittany Cleveland makes the most of each day.

"I love little kids and riding horses and helping on the farm, there's not much extra time - I'm always studying."

Whetstone Valley Electric Cooperative is sending Brittany a hundred dollar scholarship for being today's Scholar of the Week.

That's a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
