Ogilvie Announces Newest Students of the Quarter
Left to right are: MN Greater Credit Union representative Sheri Renner, freshman Kristina Josul, senior Tony Munsterteiger and OHS principal Jake Nelson.
Our junior high student, Kristina Josul, was selected from the 7th – 9th grade level category. Kristina, a freshman, is the daughter of Paul and Diane Josul. She is involved in choir, speech and FFA. Other activities she’s involved in include 4-H and archery. Her hobbies include creative writing, drawing and reading.
Her favorite subject in school is Art because she believes it gives you the chance to express yourself in many different media. She feels school is important because “the better you do in school, the higher chance you’ll have of getting into a college or getting a certain job.” Kristina plans to attend college after graduation, but is not yet sure of which one. Luckily, she has three years to think about the decision!
Our high school student, Tony Munsterteiger, was selected from the 10th – 12th grade level category. Tony, a senior, is the son of Duane and Sheila Munsterteiger. He is very involved in school. Some of his activities include: band, Ogilvie dramas and musicals, baseball, basketball, football, choir, FFA, Student Council, National Honor Society, 4-H and the Lewis Lake Youth Group. His hobbies include hunting and farming.
Tony’s favorite classes in school are Accounting and Microsoft Excel because they will help him in his future. Tony believes school is important because, as Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”. He feels this is true because whatever you do in life, you will need some kind of education. This fall, Tony will be attending South Dakota State University. He will major in Animal Science and minor in Ag Business.
A huge “thank you” to the Greater Minnesota Credit Union for sponsoring the Student of the Quarter program at Ogilvie this year!
