Four WCC Student Athletes win ExCEL awards 20 Mar 18

Four Juniors from the Wright County Conference were recently awarded EXCEL awards from the Minnesota State High School League. Honorees include: Jordan Case of Orono, Carson Dock of Waconia, Kathleen Nordstrom of Annandale, and Leah Vraspir of Watertown Mayer. ExCEL awards are given annually to high school juniors who are active in League sponsored activities, leaders in their schools, and who demonstrate a strong commitment to community service. This year’s Statewide honorees are engaged in projects that build stronger, healthier, and safer communities. They tutor students, teach Sunday school, assist seniors, visit shelters, clean highways, and fundraise for worthy causes. They also share their musical and theatrical talents at community events. Each recipient received their award during a ceremony at this past weekend’s State Girls Basketball Tournament.
