Touchstone Energy Scholar Of The Week: Abby Ottenbacher

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's "Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week" is Abby Ottenbacher from Eureka High School.

 Abby has a 3.84 grade point average and one of her teachers tell us, Abby never backs down from a challenge.

 Abby Ottenbacher is one smart, and busy, cookie.
 She's taking Bio, English 4, Spanish 2....but it's one of her extra activities that caught our attention and it obviously caught Abby's attention too. "One of the biggest things I am involved in is FCCLA and that stands for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. One of the projects that we do at our local chapter involves a healthy snack vending machine. So I'm in charge of buying the snacks, stocking the machine and counting the money and turning it into the office."

 And it is that responsible streak that serves Abby well and it also gets noticed and appreciated by her teachers. Dale Batie is the music teacher at Eureka. "She's taken some pretty challenging classes all through high school. She has never been one to just coast, she looks forward to challenges. She pushes herself. She is going to be a regents scholar this year. She doesn't take the easy road on anything."

 As far as the future is concerned, Abby knows she wants to go to Northern State University in Aberdeen....she is also taking Spanish 2 via distance learning through NSU.....and she has an idea of the field she wants to work in. "I've been thinking about going into the medical field. I work as a CNA at our local nursing home and so I've been thinking about something in the medical field but I don't know for sure yet."

 And for being named our Scholar of the Week, Abby will receive a $100 scholarship from FEM Electric Association...which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
