In order to recognize achievement, outstanding progress, and responsible behavior in our student body, grade-level teams made up of teachers select one Kimball Area High School student in each grade to be recognized as the Student of the Month. The monthly winners are recognized in school, on the school website, and in the Tri-County News. They also receive a Subway gift certificate and Chamber Bucks from the Kimball Area Chamber of Commerce. Special thanks to Luxemburg's Subway and the Kimball Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this program. The following students are recognized for February 2012:
Grade 7-Alexa Ruehle
Alexa is a polite and cheerful young lady who is respectful of her classmates and teachers. She advocates for herself by asking questions on difficult material and making sure she doesn't have any missing work. One area where Alexa really shines is on large projects because she often goes above and beyond the requirements.
Grade 8-Samuel Ehlinger
Samuel has always been a high achieving student that does well in school. Throughout this school year, Samuel has grown in the classroom. Samuel has shown a growth of maturity. It is apparent that Samuel recognizes and places a high value in education. Keep up the good work Samuel!
Grade 9-Isaiah Ehlinger
Isaiah has the highly valued traits of honesty and integrity along with a unique talent for performing Shakespearean literature. His ability to work hard, to be respectful, and to motivate himself has gone a long way in his growth as a student. We are proud to select Isaiah Ehlinger as the February student of the month!
Grade 10-Becca Frank
Becca Frank is a cheerful, polite student. She consistently gets her work done and is conscientious as well. Becca also knows, understands, and listens to direction and rules of the classroom.

Grade 11-Breanne Meierhofer
Bre is always smiling and bouncing. She makes people laugh. Bre is a very consistent student. Leadership is her strong point, both in and out of the classroom. Bre is also very approachable; she also goes out of her way to talk to all of her fellow classmates.
Grade 12-Danny Lochen
It is Danny Lochen's role as a peer tutor that led to his nomination as student of the month for February. Watching Danny work with our seventh-grade students is wonderful. He understands his role as a tutor and has developed strong relationships with students he helps. Danny is also an exemplary model of school spirit. His collection of blue and gold is always on display at athletic contests, and he can fire up a crowd. As a student, Danny is respectful of his teachers and makes a point of asking questions to further his understanding of academic material. For these and many other reasons, Danny Lochen is the February student of the month for the seniors.
