Scholar of the Week: True loves math, soccer and kids

Posted: Updated:

It's true, she loves math, speaks Spanish and plays soccer at Yankton High School.

Today's Scholar of the Week hopes to continue being true as she heads to college.

Courtney True is an academic athlete who also has an artistic side - she loves to knit and is in the knitting club here at Yankton High School.

She'll also tell you math is her favorite subject.

"I want to be a math teacher, and be a coach and a math teacher at the same time," says Courtney.

So she's following her two loves to create her future.

"I like working with kids so that fits me," she explains.

The soccer field isn't the only place Courtney can score - as she's scored well in every class.

"She's one who comes to class, especially when she has extracurricular events," says her teacher Judy Tereshinski.

But Courtney doesn't credit herself for all her academic success.

She says, "I think our teachers push harder, it's a better environment."

If becoming a math teacher doesn't pan out, Courtney has a plan B.

"I think I'd work at a bank, it's another way I could work with numbers."

Local Touchstone Energy Cooperative Bonhomme Yankton Electric Association is sending Courtney a hundred dollar scholarship for being today's Scholar of the Week.
