Ada-Borup, Fertile-Beltrami, & Ulen-Hitterdal Schools Top Good Student Award Honors
Ada, MN — The R & J Broadcasting Inc. Good Student Awards wrapped up for the 2020-2021 school year in April and each week we recognized one male and one female student from our area schools who exemplify excellent leadership, achieve high academics, show strong personality, and are involved in their school and community. Students are nominated by school staff and interviewed by R & J Broadcasting. This week we also recognized the area schools who sent in the most student nominations throughout the school year. This year the top schools were Ada-Borup (1st place), Fertile-Beltrami (2nd place), and Ulen-Hitterdal (3rd place) and each received a cash donation.
Ada-Borup received a $300 donation for their first-place efforts. We chatted with Superintendent Aaron Cook this week while dropping off the donation.
Fertile-Beltrami took home runner up honors this year and received $200. Sean Bjerk of R & J News spoke with High School Principal Natty Messick.
And rounding out the podium this year was Ulen-Hitterdal, who received $100. We spoke with retiring Superintendent Todd Cameron as they wrap up the year.
A special thanks to all the area staff for sending in the Good Student Award nominations this year and congratulations to the students who were selected.
