Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week: Kayla Vanden Hoek

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Kayla Vanden Hoek from Corsica High School.
 Right now, Kayla has a 3.8 grade point average and she has that as the result of a lot of hard work that involves classes that are far from easy.

 Kayla Vanden Hoek told us something that you rarely hear from students in their senior year of high school. "Those math and science classes are my favorite." And she should know, because those types of classes are predominate in her class schedule as she heads towards graduation day. "Well I'm taking economics, I did take psychology...I really like psychology...but right now I'm taking economics, college English, Physics, independent PE and band."

 She says she enjoys all of these classes and that is a good thing; it not only benefits her but it also benefits those around here.
 This is what social studies teacher Wade Gall told us about Kayla in class. "She interacts very very well...always very inquisitive....on certain topics...if she has a question she's not afraid to ask. So that's always a good thing ...it really starts conversations within the class."

 And that good attitude...and a sense of duty and caring...will lead Kayla into the future.
 Listen to what she told us about her part-time job and the impact it has had on her. "I've been working at the Good Samaritan since I was 16 years old. I really like helping out the residents and stuff. I'm a CNA so I kinda just listen to what the nurses tell me to do and get them up in the morning. help them clean themselves and really I like doing that a lot so that's why I decided to pursue my area of ...you know....going onto school and the medical field."

 For being named our Scholar of the Week, Kayla will receive a $100 scholarship from Douglas Electric Cooperative, which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
