Katie’s future plans include attending Benedictine College for a degree in nursing and “possibly (joining) the peace corps as (she has) a love and passion for helping people.”

Thomas Kroymann

Thomas, a member of the National Honor Society, has earned the Big 9 Academic awards in both football and track and field, and he earned an All-Conference honorable mention for track in 2018.

“My educational experience so far has been excellent,” Thomas said. “I have been given so many opportunities to succeed and to challenge myself.”  Thomas’ plans for the future include attending the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to pursue a degree in pre-med and play football.

Each month the Austin Rotary, in conjunction with Austin Public Schools, selects two students who excel in academics, leadership, and/or activities.
