Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Matthew Preszler, a senior at Menno High School.
Matthew has a perfect 4.0 grade point average.
Tonight, we're going to find out a little about how Matthew is able to live up to such a high standard.
Last year, Matthew Preszler took college level Algebra and college level Speech and describes both of those classes....as fun. "Those were.....they were fun....they involved a lot of classwork and stuff like that but I did enjoy them overall. I'm glad for the experience."
This semester, Matthew is talking tough classes as well: one of them being an in-depth course in Human Anatomy. "I do really enjoy it though. Right now I have a test today on all the different hormones we have right now but just all the different parts of the body."
Through all of his course work, Matthew has managed to maintain a perfect 4.0 grade point average and that perfection comes as no surprise to his English teacher Kay Smidt. "Matthew is the epitome of the perfect student. He is so enthusiastic and he is wiling to help anybody..anyone else in the classroom who needs help. He pushes them to excel."
Matthew is ready to excel in college. He is heading for the University of South Dakota in the Fall...planning on a career in our area's growing medical industry. "I haven't really decided if I want to be on the business end of it or on the caregiving side of it though. I do know I want to go into the health care field."
For being named our Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week, Matthew will receive a $100 scholarship from Southeastern Electric Coop...which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
