  15. Congratulations to MaKenzie Long for being chosen as the Badger Athlete of the Week.  Coach Gass says MaKenzie’s leadership and dedication to her team, to herself and to her goals continue to amaze me.  Her smile and that spark in her eye tells it all.  MaKenzie posted a personal best time at the West Holt Cross Country meet. Her time, 22:57.10, moved her up two positions on the 5,000 meter record board.  MaKenzie’s goal at the end of her Freshman year was to improve her time and move up the record board.  As a Junior she did this.  Keep moving to the top, MaKenzie. You are my recommendation for  Badger of the Week.
  16. Congratulations to Gunnar Battershaw for being selected as the Badger Scholar of the Week.  Mr. Jensen says Gunnar is a prime example of a star student. He is respectful, attentive, and asks great questions. He always does his best work and tries his hardest. Gunnar recently demonstrated his knowledge of the Industrial Revolution in American History by building a functioning model of a steam engine. His projects he has done are always done so well that they become examples for future classes. I am truly impressed by Gunnar's work ethic and the work he has done so far in my classes. Keep up the great work Gunnar!
