Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week: Tyson Mitzel

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week goes above and beyond what is expected.

 Tyson Mitzel is a senior at Aberdeen Roncalli with a 4.1 grade point average and his teachers say his success is no accident.

 Tyson Mitzel is trying to balance a lot right now when it comes to his school work: Economics, Spanish, Physics, English and Drama. All at once. And a couple of those classes may lead Tyson to his next step in life. "The classes I am really focusing on really are my Spanish, Calculus and Physics classes. I plan on probably going into Engineering, Civil Engineering so I am really focused on my Science and Math there also."

 And Tyson's focus is a good thing, because it not only allows him to do well in class but it allows him to help others as well.
 Justin Briese is Tyson's Science teacher. "Tyson as a student is great in the classroom. He's a leader in the classroom. He does what is expected of him. He goes...more than what's expected of him actually. He does what he is supposed to and then some."

 So what is Tyson thinking about college? He thinks it will be a choice between the South Dakota School of Mines and South Dakota State. It's a choice he needs to make fairly soon and he knows it. "I'd really like to do something I could use a foreign language skill in but also I still have that Math and Science aspect that really interests me so I'll probably start worrying about that when I get down to the wire."

 For being named our Scholar of the Week, Tyson receives a $100 scholarship from Northern Electric Cooperative, which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
