Scholar of the Week: Jenna Kitchenmaster

Posted: Updated:

Today's Scholar of the Week goes to a small southeastern South Dakota school with only about 100 high school students in grades 9 through 12.

We bring you to Andes Central High School in Lake Andes, South Dakota to meet tonight's scholar.

Senior Jenna Kitchenmaster enjoys her small senior class size.

"There are 18 kids in my class and I like it a lot because we all know each other and we've been together 12 years," Kitchenmaster said.

And maybe that's why she's so involved in school. She has a huge class load, from English to pre-calculus to online health. She's involved in the marching band and choir. Plus, she's also part of school clubs like the National Honor Society.

"I think they'll probably all come in handy. I'm not sure what I want to do but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to use all of it," Kitchenmaster said.

While she isn't sure what she wants to do or what college she's going to just yet, some of her teachers like Linda Iverson know she's starting to make something of herself.

"I know whatever she's going to succeed because she's very conscious about doing well and wants to do well and everything she does and she's not satisfied until she does her job," Iverson said.

Iverson thinks that future job will be dealing with people.

"She likes to be with people, she interacts well with any age and I'm sure whatever she goes into it's going to be involving with a lot of people," lverson said.

While she still has some time to think about her future, she also enjoys her free time and spending it with people who mean the most to her.

"Just be with my family, be with my friends," Kitchenmaster said.

Jenna is narrowing down some colleges including Northwestern College in Iowa, University of South Dakota and Augustana College.

She receives a $100 scholarship for being today's Scholar of the Week.
