Scholar of the Week: Adelyn Crabtree

Posted: Updated:

 Our "Scholar of the Week" gets an A-plus from her teachers at Riggs High School in Pierre.

 She loves a challenge and her class work shows it, as does what she has in mind for her future career.

 Her name is Adelyn Crabtree and she is one focused young lady.

 Adelyn Crabtree is a soft spoken individual.
 But her class work speaks for itself; both for it's a quality and for the amount of discipline it takes to tackle these classes in the first place. "Right now I'm taking Honors English, AP Calc and AP Chem along with band and choir and I have personal finance and intro to infotech."

 Advanced Placement classes are tough to tackle on their own...let alone taking two at the same time....let alone that they are Calculus and Chemistry.
 Adleyn's chemistry teacher Beata Ferris tells us, Adelyn's work has allowed her to rise to the top of her class. "She is very meticulous and critical of making sure that she uses the exact right formulas and places the numbers in exactly the right place. She checks her significant figures all the time and calls me on it when I make a mistake."

 Adelyn tries not to make mistakes. She prides herself on doing good work and it is that good work that she hopes will take her into the next phase of her academic life. "I'm planning to become a chemical engineer, so the AP Calc and the AP Chem are really going to help me hopefully transfer over to college level stuff."

 And for being named our "Scholar of the Week", Adelyn will receive a $100 scholarship from Oahe Electric Cooperative...a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
