Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week: Taylor Homann

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Taylor Homann, a senior at Pipestone Area High School.
 Taylor currently has a 3.95 grade point average.
 When we asked Taylor what she wanted to do a her future career, her answer blew up away.

 This semester alone, Taylor Homann is taking a class load which includes Calculus, AP Chemistry and Psychology.
 And while these types of classes would be avoided by a lot of students, for Taylor...it's right up her alley. "I have always been very scientifically inclined but I also want to be as efficient with my time as possible and help as many people as I can."

 And helping people is what Taylor plans on doing. Listen to what Taylor told us when we asked her what her plans are for next Fall. "Next Fall I am going to attend the University of Minnesota for biology and maybe a minor in public health."

 More on what Taylor will do with that degree in just a moment.
 We wanted to find out what kind of student Taylor is in class. So we asked her Chemistry teacher, David Dulas. "She is an excellent student to have in class. She's one of our students that will go above and beyond kind of the normal everyday things. She always has her homework done which in turn allows her to ask questions above and beyond what most kids will ask."

 Taylor's curiosity and love of knowledge will be a credit to her in her future career.
 Her plans are big.
 she wants to be an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control....working on the front lines of protecting people's health. "OK here's an outbreak of this virus or this disease in....wherever around the world...how can we contain it? How can we learn from it?."

 For being named Scholar of the Week, Taylor will receive a $100 scholarship from Sioux Valley Energy, which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
