Our "Scholar of the Week" is a very determined young lady who enjoys public speaking and says she may want to pursue a career where she can put those talents to use. Shelby Huber from Menno High School is poised and well spoken....and a very good student.
Ask anyone who knows Shelby Huber and they will tell you that she is focused: focused on being a good student and focused on being a good person. She has a perfect 4.0 grade point average and is the president of the student council. She takes AP calculus and other college prep courses. But if you ask her, one of the things she is most proudest of is being active in her church youth group. "Every Summer we go on a serve trip. So this year I went to Toronto, Canada. That was really cool. It was a long drive though."
Shelby is no stranger to hard work. She is a member of Menno's speech team and Kay Smidt is one of her coaches. "Shelby is a very driven, a very passionate student. She probably drives us as teachers to excel and to push her because she pushes us. It's a two way street."
Shelby says she is ready to make the jump to college life and she says a very good idea of what she wants to do with her life. "I would like to attend USD for something in communications. I don't know if I want to go into broadcasting or advertising or journalism and I'd like to minor in business and beyond that I don't know."
For being named our Scholar of the Week, Shelby will receive a $100 scholarship from Southeastern Electric Cooperative, which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
