Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Alyson Roth from Avon High School.
Alyson has an impressive 3.94 grade point average and is in Volleyball, Basketball and Track.
Alyson also has been working in a job shadow program and it has really made an impression on her life and what she wants to do with it.
It is not uncommon to find Alyson Roth in the Science room at Avon High School, amid pictures, schematics and models of the human body and other biological amazements. Science is not her only interest, nor is it her only challenging class as she makes her way through her senior year. "I'm taking college English and all the other hard classes like Physics, Advanced Math and like History, a few of those."
And all of those are helping Alyson figure out a couple of things: time management and multi-tasking highest among them....skills that serve her well and her Math teacher Connie Gretschmann tells us....they are talents she is not shy about sharing with others. "She works well with the other classmates in senior math they trade problem solving skills back and forth so it's a very good atmosphere when they are in there."
One of the assignments Alyson has been tackling during senior year has been a job shadow assignment in the medical field.....watching and observing....and she says seeing that first hand has allowed her to make a decision about her future. "I plan to go to Southeast Tech for Diagnostic Medical Stenography which is where I'll do ultrasounds on like a whole bunch of different things including the abdominal area and even babies."
In the meantime, Alyson will continue to put her nose to grindstone...and end her senior year on a definite up note.
For being named our "Scholar of the Week", Alyson will receive a $100 scholarship from Bon Homme-Yankton Electric Association...which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
