Students of the month for May at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School are shown. From left are Anna Kaschmitter, jr. high and Tucker Hibbard and Will Wimer, high school. Anna is an exceptional student.  She takes pride in her school work and always strives to do her best.  She never fails to ask to help out in the classroom- yearbook, slide show etc. She is well deserving for this honor. Tucker is one of the most helpful students we have in school.  In addition, he is very active with the FFA program, track and is a great support to all Prairie activities. Will works very hard in class, and it is evident that his work is important to him.  He has a great attitude and outlook and it rubs off on those around him.  We love his smile!
