9.       Congratulatons to Jon Keller, our Badger of the Week.  Mr. Beebout says Jon did an excellent job of leading the Valentine Offense from the quarterback position this season.  With the help of his teammates Jon was able to pass for over 1,000 yards this season, and rush for almost 500 yards.  Jon's hard work in practice also led to his teammates selecting him as a captain this season. Jon was always a great teammate, pushing his peers, but always remaining positive.

10.    Congratulations to Katherine Petersen, our Badger Scholar of the Week.  Mrs. Arganbright says Katherine has been nothing but the perfect Broadcasting assistant, even if she is a student in the class she might as well be the teacher. I’ve been able to count on her to help get the livestream set up for our events and she never complains. She is eager to try new things from making video advertisements to podcasts and she will be producing the next Badger Newscast. Thank you Katherine for being my right hand lady.
