Scholar Of The Week: Stephanie Haiar

Posted: Updated:

 Our "Scholar of the Week" has her eye on working in the medical profession.

 Her teachers say she is focused and doesn't settle for second best.

 But, she also says that her work load is tough and that one of the reasons she takes such difficult courses is to make herself a better person.
 We want you to meet Stephanie Haiar of Marion High School.

 Stephanie Haiar has a strong work ethic.
 She is always seemingly on the go, whether it's sports or academics.
 And when it comes to the classroom, she has a real passion for tackling the tough stuff. "I'm taking AP Biology, Pre-Calculus, Senior English which is involved with a senior project and government."

 Stephanie is well known and well liked in school.
 She is always willing to take the time to stop and help others, which her teachers say is just one example of why she is a leader at Marion High School. Chad Allison is the principal at Marion High School. "She's gonna do what it takes to be successful. Everyday she comes to school, she's ready to perform academically."

 Stephanie's class load of honors and advanced classes is not easy and Stephanie will be the first one to tell you that she by no means is breezing through these classes. But she says the fact that they are tough will serve her well down the road. "They help me to stay on task, and get my work done. I'm learning a lot that I'll take with me to college. I have to work hard. I do struggle at times but it taught me to ask questions and stick with it."

 Stephanie plans on attending the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in the Fall, where she will major in Nursing.
 For being named our "Scholar of the Week", Stephanie will receive a $100 scholarship from Southeastern Electric Cooperative, a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
