It may be cold outside, but the November Little Falls Community High School (LFCHS) Girl of the Month keeps the heat on high. Kaitlin Geisenhof has heated up the trails for the girls Nordic ski team during all four years of her high school career, and was named to the All Conference and All Section teams as well as joining her teammates in the state meet. Her dedication and leadership landed her the position of team captain this year.
Geisenhof swam for her freshman year and then switched to cross country for three years, earning a varsity letter in the sport. She has been a manager for both the track and cross country teams.
Geisenhof participated in wind ensemble, Flyer Christian Athletes, Key Club, Link and Math League during her years at the high school and still had time for prom committee her junior year. Dedication in the classroom resulted in Geisenhof being named to the National Honor Society.
Outside of school, Geisenhof shares her time and talents with Oasis Share a Meal, Packaging Food for the People of the Dominican Republic and service to the community through her church religious education group.
Despite her busy schedule, she has found time to work through these past four years – as a nanny and also as a sales clerk at the local boutique “Ambiance.” Books, family and friends play a large part in her life.
Her advisers say Geisenhof is a leader who leads by example and few words.
“She is focused, kind, conscientious, giving, respectful, intelligent and a great human being and apparently one in need of jumper cables once in a while. Kaitlin has also been described as articulate, unflappable, scholarly, hard working, friendly and dependable,” said adviser Andy Ward. “I have been looking forward to the day when I would help recognize one of the greatest advisees in the history of advisees; I knew it would only be a matter of time before Katilin received this honor.”
After high school, Geisenhof will head to the College of St. Benedict to study biology or nutrition. She is the daughter of Gwen and Rick Geisenhof.
