Tonight's "Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week" is Alli Steckelberg of Chamberlain High School.
She has an out of this world 4.12 grade point average; the result of taking weighted classed in Math; a subject she has a true talent for.
Alli Steckelberg's list of classes is a tough one and tilts heavily in the favor of math courses. "Calculus, AP Government, then Senior Lit, then Science which is Physics..."
And it is the classes in Calculus and Physics that Alli thinks she will need down the road. She really likes those classes and wants to do more in that field.....for a career. "I want to do something with math so for sure my Math class and then AP Government which is kind of preparing me for college."
Alli's love of Math has benefited her....and others. She's on the National Honor Society. She is a Math tutor at her school and she serves as a teacher's assistant for Chamberlain Math teacher Carissa Vanderley...who can't say enough about Alli and her talents. "When I see her in class she is just a phenomenal student. She works hard. She is always there to help out another student if they need help. She just exemplifies what a role model student should be."
And the good classroom relationship works both ways for Alli, who says being interested in a tough subject at a smaller school really helps out. "Teachers are really friendly cause they know you and they know you on a personal basis."
For being named our Scholar of the Week, Alli will receive a $100 scholarship from Central Electric Cooperative...which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
