We welcome Alexis Johnson as our 2021 William Wiersma Scholar! Alexis is valedictorian of the Cambria-Friesland High School Class of 2021, and will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison to study business. Alexis has excelled academically, in the classroom as well as meeting the challenges of remote learning over the past two years. Her efforts in business-related classes and extra-curricular activities (Future Business Leaders of America) have been particularly exemplary, serving as a student assistant in the former, and receiving recognition for her entry into the spreadsheet competition in the latter. Alexis’ calm and mature approach to situations has made her a strong leader, and was especially evident in her work as a poll worker for the national election in 2020. She stated that her election experience highlighted the power and privilege of our voting process, the importance of respecting everyone’s views and the value in establishing relationships within the community and local government. We are proud to welcome Alexis as a William Wiersma Scholar!
