Another amazing grade point average for our Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week.
Corrina Reuer is a senior at Chamberlain High School and she currently carries a 4.1 grade point average.
Corrina Reuer's school day is a busy from start to finish.
Listen to the first three classes she has to begin her day. "My first period starts out with AP Literature...and then my second period is Calculus...my third period is AP Government."
And the classes that follow those are health sciences, environmental sciences and animal sciences.
All that combined is a lot to deal with but Corrina tells us she wouldn't have it any other way.
And there is a specific reason Corrina is taking all of those science related classes...though it is not the reason most would suspect for this girl with the farming background. "Most people would assume that I want to be like a vet or something. I mean...that's pretty much all I've done in my life...but that's not what I really want to do."
What Corrina really wants to do is be a pediatrician....to help little kids who are sick and try to make them better.
And being better is what Corrina is all about.
Sandy West is a Chamberlain business teacher. "When you leave high school, every high school student has a transcript and on that transcript it shows your dedication towards your grades and coming to school every day and Corrina has that 100%. Her grades are excellent."
And her excellent grades are preparing her for the next big step...which she will take this fall. "I'm gonna so to SDSU and major in pre-med biology."
For being named our Scholar of the Week, Corrina will receive a $100 scholarship from Central Electric Cooperative....which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
