I am delighted to recommend Mr. Kobi Lutjens as a Scholar of the Week. Kobi is a very interesting young man with many attributes. He can make one crazy with his opinions but as he has matured, I have found him willing to listen and process information different from his own. Kobi is a very strong academic student with a 3.824 grade point average. During his junior year alone, he earned a total of 23 dual credits for college. His senior year, Kobi will earn an additional 19 credits allowing him to graduate high school as a college sophomore. Kobi’s academic strength is, without question, mathematics and he has excelled throughout his school career in that area. Kobi is also an active community member. He began a Men’s Softball team and organized members so they could play each week. He uses his trumpet talents for his church during holidays as well as his school’s band and jazz band programs. He assists with Mitchell’s Rodeo program, participates in Track and Field, grooms local bike trails, helps elderly neighbors with snow removal and yard work. One incredible endeavor Kobi has taken on is a Community Garden. Kobi organized a garden in his own backyard and welcomed community members to pick up fresh produce during the summer months. Due to his academic gifts, Kobi’s goal is earn a degree in Civil Engineering. He is so anxious to make a difference in our world. I high recommend Kobi Lutjens as a Scholar of the Week!
