Amber graduated from Summit with a perfect 4.00 grade average, and has maintained the same perfect grades while at Carroll this past year, majoring in the math, engineering and computer science department. During her high school career, Miss Nuxoll completed two full years of Calculus, as a sophomore and a junior, and earned college credits from Lewis-Clark College in Lewiston in Finite Math her senior year.

Summit's Virtue winners are named
Completing the second last virtue campaign for the year, one focused on the virtue of constancy with St. Benedict Joseph as the model, the following students were named by their teachers, their peers in some cases, and other criteria as the Constancy winners for the month:
High School: Lauren Chmelik, Zach Frei, Tara Stubbers, and Rachel Wemhoff
Junior High: Savannah Kuther and Brooke Schumacher
Elementary: Nicole Wemhoff, Nathan Beckman, Thomas Schwartz, Nathan Beckman, Kayla Rehder, Justin Wassmuth, and kindergarten winner, Jessie Sonnen
Closing out the nine month virtue program, the Academy students are asked to work on diligence, with special attention paid to homework, locker neatness, class preparation, locker and desk cleanliness, and other specifics suited for each grade level. St. Rita, a mother who dealt patiently and diligently with a harsh husband for nearly 15 years before he turned around is the model for the month.
This ninth virtue and saint concludes the nine campaigns challenging students to improve themselves and take on a more Christ-like personality and character.
