Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week: Sean Pinkert

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's "Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week" is Sean Pinkert from Milbank High School.

 Sean has an above average grade point average of 4.07.

 But as we found out, he has much more than just a strong work ethic.

 Sean Pinkert is involved in his school and it goes beyond what he does in the classroom.
 For starters, he is open in talking about his involvement in his church youth group. "Its helped make me who I am. Without the church I don't know where I would be."

 Where Sean finds himself, typically, is in the middle of events which help people.
 On this day, we found Sean helping out at a blood drive at his school.
 He tells us one thing that is always on his mind is what he can do to help others.....though he is a little shy when it comes to talking about it. "It's just who I am. I am a giving person. I don't want to sound like all high and mighty but that is just who I am."

 When it comes to his school work, he says he can't wait to take the next step into college. He's just not sure yet where that step will take him."I'm planning on going to college somewhere. Hopefully SDSU or NDSU. As for what I am going for, I'm not sure yet."

 Sean is involved heavily in FFA.
 Jerry Janisch is Sean's FFA advisor and says Sean is a student who excels. "He is one of the smartest students I've ran into for quite a while. Very dedicated. Very smart."

 And as for a career, Sean has an idea of what he would like to pursue. "I would like to do something in the outdoors....that's hands on and just involved with the wildlife and stuff."

 For being named our "Scholar of the Week", Sean will receive a $100 scholarship from Whetstone Valley Electric Cooperative.... which is a Touchstone Energy cooperative.
