Touchstone Energy Scholar Of The Week: Garret Reed

Posted: Updated:

 Tonight's Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week is Garret Reed, a senior at Estelline High School.

 Garret is a member of the National Honor Society, which is no surprise because Garret is currently carrying a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

 Garret Reed is now in his final semester of his high school career; a time most seniors hope for an easier class load.
 But that is not the case with Garret. "I've got Pre-Calc and then I've got some English....English 4 I am taking...then I am also taking Personal Finance and then Physics."

 And add to that classes on cabinetry and art.
 And through all this classwork, Garret has a perfect 4.0 grade point average. When we asked Garret how is able to do this, he told us the most important part is not being afraid to ask teachers questions. "Asking teachers questions so if you have a lot of work and you don't get it...you go in and ask them in the morning or after school. And then at night spending time and doing it, it helps a lot."

 The Estelline school is a smaller school where kids all know each other and frequently work together not only in class but in sports and on outside community project.
 Superintendent Pat Kraning tells us that the values this kind of atmosphere creates will serve garret well once he graduates. "I think the lessons he learned here...the hard work....the teamwork...the ability to lead and to follow when its appropriate are going to be the lessons he takes away and takes out into the workplace."

 Garret is still deciding on his next step..where he will go to college. He has some options that he is still working to narrow down but he does know this. "It will probably be somewhere close to home and I think I will go with something that is business related."

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