Students of the month for January at Prairie High School are Michelle Geis, left and Kelsey Marker.  Michelle has really proven her desire to succeed and excel. She works hard to get her work done and is always respectful to those around her. Michelle has the potential to “go places” with her work ethic. Because of her outstanding organizational skills and excellent work ethic, she was given the opportunity to work at a local business after school. Kelsey is a remarkable young lady dedicated to her academics. She is goal-oriented and self-motivated. During longer projects and assignments she has shown an ability to time manage. She willingly takes on extra responsibilities/work for a class if needed. She is an excellent example of what it means to be an academically dedicated student.
