Kassidy Clark was named the Touchstone Energy Scholar of the Week for the week of January 13-19, 2019. Clark is the daughter of Travis and Kristie Clark and is currently a senior at Corsica-Stickney High School.
Clark is an excellent role model and leader for her school with numerous years in 4-H, plus involvement in volleyball, basketball, FCCLA, student council, one-act play, school play, national honor society and more. She plans to attend Mitchell Technical Institute in the fall for radiology.
“She ranks right up there with the best of them,” math teach Jacque Boyle said. “She works really hard, and you can tell with her work ethic in the classroom that she’s there with the rest of them too, she wants to do well. She’s got a smile she carries through the halls. Other teachers see it. She’s talking to all ages, it’s nice to see that in the students as well.”
About the Program
Central Electric, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, awarded a $100 scholarship to Clark. Central Electric Manager Ken Schlimgen visited Corsica-Stickney High School to recognize her and present the award. Clark was also featured on KSFY TV news for her achievements, and the interview can be viewed at www.ksfy.com.
The Scholar of the Week scholarship was created by KSFY and Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to recognize outstanding students across the state who set an example of hard work and high academic standards. Area school principals and faculty nominate students for this award, based on excellence in the classroom, service in the community and extracurricular participation. The KSFY staff makes weekly selections throughout the school year.
