Teachers from each of the elementary schools select students to receive the American Legion School Awards. One boy and one girl from each grade are chosen annually for this honor. In addition to an American Legion School Award certificate, each winning student receives a cash award of $25 dollars.
Chosen from Austin Elementary were Kiley Wood and Marshal Kendler for the first grade and Shantel French and Adam Jensen for the second grade.
Jolley School winners were Teddi Settles and Adam Winslow from the third grade, Sarah Johnson and Nick Jensen from the fourth grade, and Julie Goeden and Nape Fox from the fifth grade.
At the Middle School, Raycee Thompson and Paul Granaas represented the sixth grade, Carlee Sorensen and Dexter Mehlhaf represented the seventh grade, and Michelle Blythe and Tim Tigert were the winners from the eighth grade.
St. Agnes School award winners were Ashley Schulz and Carter Kratz in the first grade, Emily Schmitz and Brandon Mockler in the second grade, Marley Hanson and Andrew Heine in grade three, Sydney Kronaizl and Ander Geise representing the fourth grade and Ellen Hanson and William Card were the award winners in the fifth grade.
"Students chosen to receive this recognition from the American Legion are students who have demonstrated outstanding develop-ment of the qualities of Courage, Honor, Leadership, Patriotism, Scholarship, Honesty, and Service," said Roger Kozak, Legion Americanism Officer, "and American Legion Post #1 is proud to recognize these young boys and girls who have been chosen by their teachers to represent their respective grades for the 2006 school year."
