Students of the month for March at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School are from left, Ellea Poxleitner, junior high and from the high school, Sarah Seubert, Brandon Higgins and Stellina Laurino. Ellea is an outstanding student who is meticulous about her work and consistently scores at the top of her class.  She is very courteous, kind and thoughtful, and she is always willing to lend a hand. Sarah is a straight A student who has many talents beyond the classroom.  Her sewing ability is wonderful and her athletic involvement is to be commended! Brandon is a kind, compassionate young adult who goes to the extra mile to see that others in need are taken care of.  He is a great student/athlete and is the President of the Junior Class.  Stellina is a quiet leader in so many ways; she is mature and never – ever complains.  She is extremely talented artistically, musically and in the performing arts.Photo provided by Ryan Hasselstrom.  Click on the photo for a larger view.
