For the third year, Heartland 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 David Clarey, a senior at Howard High School, as the March 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.
“David is an outstanding student and is an avid reader,” said Howard High School Principal Mike Cullen. “He is active in many of our activities and succeeds in all of them. Respected by his peers, David possesses outstanding leadership qualities.”
David is the son of Toni and John Clarey. He is active in football, basketball, the school newspaper and yearbook, currently serves as Student Council President, and is a member of National Honor Society. He is on the A honor roll and received the President’s Award for Education. After high school, he plans to attend the University of Minnesota and pursue a degree in Journalism.
