Heartland Names November Student of the Month
HOWARD, 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 Shelby Wingen, a senior at Howard High School, as the November 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.
“Shelby is an outstanding person,” said Howard High School Principal Mike Cullen. “She is reliable, compassionate, helpful to students and staff, and a class leader. She is an asset to our student body and school climate.”
Shelby is the daughter of Terry and Gin Wingen. She plays basketball, is a statistician for football, coached softball and is the president of National Honor Society. She has been named to the A Honor Roll throughout high school and was a Girls State delegate. After high school, she plans to pursue a degree in Radiology Technology, and then continue her education in Radiation Therapy.
