MADISON, S.D. - For the fourth year, Heartland Consumers Power District is teaming up with KJAM Radio in Madison to offer an exceptional student in one of five area school districts the chance to be named “Student of the Month.” Heartland named Johnny Monroe, a senior at Madison High School, as the December student of the month.
Heartland provides wholesale power to the cities of Colman, Arlington, Volga, Madison and Howard, all of which are in the KJAM listening area. Each month of the school year, Heartland will recognize an outstanding student from one of these schools. The student will be presented a recognition certificate and a small token from Heartland. Advertisements announcing the winning student will air on KJAM the last week of each month. Officials from each participating school nominate students for the award.
“Johnny is a well-rounded student who sets the bar high academically,” said Madison High School Principal Adam Shaw. “Students in the Madison School District look up to Johnny because of his leadership and his ability to build relationships with everyone. We look forward to watching Johnny continue to succeed in the years to come.”
Johnny is the son of Adam and Carleigh Foland, and John Robert Monroe the 4th. He plays football and was named to Academic All-State. He is involved in student council and serves as president of National Honor Society. He is a columnist for the school newspaper and volunteers at his church. After high school, he plans to attend the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
