Kimball Area High School has nominated Brett Ostby and Jenna Maus for the ExCEL (Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership) Award.
Sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League, ExCEL is a unique recognition program designed exclusively for Minnesota high school juniors. Students who are active in fine arts and/or athletic activities, who show leadership qualities, and who are model citizens in their community are eligible for the award.
ExCEL Award recipients are selected through a multi-level process that involves league-member schools and an independent panel of judges from schools throughout Minnesota. Award recipients will be recognized on KSTC-TV (Channel 45) during the winter tournaments.
"The ExCEL Award program is an excellent opportunity for high school juniors who have excelled to receive statewide recognition for their leadership and community service," said Erik Widvey.
For more information about the ExCEL Award program, please contact the league at (763) 560-2262, or www.mshsl.org on the Web.
Jenna is the daughter of Ed and Sue Maus. Brett is the son of Todd and Kim Ostby.
