In order to recognize achieve-ment, outstanding progress, and responsible behavior in our stu-dent 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 certifi-cate and Chamber Bucks from the Kimball Area Chamber of Com-merce. Special thanks to Luxem-burg's Subway and the Kimball Chamber of Commerce for spon-soring this program. The follow-ing students are recognized for November 2011:
Aeron Ashbrook-Grade: 7

choices. Blake is also being recog-nized for superb listening skills and his excellence in cooperative learning activities.
Kristina Stuve-Grade 10
Kristina possesses a good, strong personality. She is willing to go against the norm in a positive way and not afraid to speak her mind by voicing opinions in the classroom, but in a healthy manner. Kristina also understands that others have similar but opposing opinions, and therefore, she allows them to also have a voice and she respects them and what they have to share. In addition, teachers appreciate what Kristina brings to the classroom and congratulate her on being Novem-ber student of the month.
Austin Hammerstad-Grade 11
Austin has improved his ability to be accountable for his academ-
ics, behavior and attendance. He is respectful to the staff, his peers, and he is going to have a bright future.
Samantha Stuve-Grade 12
When it comes to Kimball stu-dents, Samantha Stuve is a senior class standout. Sam is respect-ful, dedicated, hardworking, and focused on success. As one teacher stated, "Sam is the epitome of 'nice.'" She is one of the most kind-hearted people we know. Sam is active in athletics and student government. She takes concur-rent enrollment courses and chal-lenges herself in other academic areas. Sam is full of Kimball Cub spirit as she participates in cross-country, basketball, and track. We are proud to nominate Samantha Stuve as the senior class student of the month for November.
