Scholar Of The Week: Kari Fods

Posted: Updated:

 Our Scholar of the Week is carrying a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

 She is the president of the National Honor Society, Spanish Club and band in addition to being her class president.

 Her name is Kari Fods and she is a senior at the Chester Area School.

 Kari Fods likes to push herself: she likes to learn new things and isn't afraid to try new classes.
 Right now, Kari is tackling Anatomy, Physics, British Literature, Calculus and Spanish 4.
 And she says a heavy class load like that is doing wonders to prepare her for college in the fall. "I'm planning to go to Augustana and what I would like to go into is occupational therapy but I want to major in Exercise Science and probably minor in Psychology or something like that."

 And Kari's hard work is being met with success.
 She has a 4.0 GPA and her efforts are being noticed, both by teachers and by underclassmen who benefit from Kari's outreach.
 Velva Schneider is Kari's Spanish teacher. "We're a small community here at Chester and Kari has been very compassionate about talking to the underclassmen if there's ever something going on."

 Kari is very busy with her work both in the classroom and outside the classroom but she also knows how to unwind and have a little bit of fun. "I really like to go to movies. I'm a movie fanatic. I pretty much live for commercials of movies and be like "hey Mom, lets go to a movie".

 And for being named our "Scholar of the Week", Kari will receive a $100 scholarship from Sioux Valley Energy, which is a local Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
