Congratulations to our February Students of the Month. From left are Lance Goeckner, Anna Kaschmitter and Rosie Trautman. Anna, the junior high student of the month is an outstanding student who genuinely cares about the quality of her work.  She is quiet and courteous, and she is always willing to go the extra mile.  Lance, one of two high school students of the month, is a hard working student that always takes time to accomplish quality work & craftsmanship. He is a respected member of the agricultural community and he plans to establish his own farm & ranch. His work ethic is unmatched by any student enrolled in agricultural education courses. Lance is courteous and respectful at all times. Rosie, the other high school student of the month  is a great student.  She always has a positive attitude and always gets straight to work.  She is sometimes overlooked because she is so quiet, but she has a wonderful sense of humor and is a joy to be around.
