Touchstone Energy Scholar Of The Week: Danielle Voss

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Danielle Voss from Viborg-Hurley High School.

 Danielle has an astounding 4.12 grade point average and says she has been laying a groundwork for the future and she is ready to get it going.

 Danielle Voss knows what it is like to do harm work in school and to have that work pay off.

 Which is why we thought it was interesting that part of what Danielle does in school is to help younger kids prepare for academic success. "Right now I'm taking calculus and government and then I am also doing peer tutoring for the kindergarten class. I go in there and read to them and help them write sentences and things like that."

 Danielle has a specific focus: medicine. But she just isn't sure what field of medicine she wants to go into .....yet. "I kinda want to become a doctor but I'm not sure what kind of doctor yet. So I am going to see what I like."

 And whatever it is Danielle decides to put her mind to, her track record shows she will do very well at it.
 Amy Smith is Danielle's English teacher. "Danielle is a very dedicated student. She always works her hardest to get excellent grades and do a great job. She doesn't do just enough to earn an A she always goes above and beyond."

 College is in the offing for Danielle. There are still some decisions to make between now and then but Danielle has time and determination. "I'm not 100% sure what I want to do yet . I don't want to go in there and say I want to be this and then end up like changing my major. So I am going to take some classes and see what I like."

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