The Little Falls Exchange Club has chosen Alex Fellbaum as the Little Falls Community High School (LFCHS) December Boy of the Month. He is the son of Greg and Linda Fellbaum.
Fellbaum stays very active in and out of school. He carries a GPA of 3.362 and has been a member of the cross country team, Link and Skills Fest. This last fall, his fellow students selected Fellbaum as their homecoming king. Also been very involved in FFA, Fellbaum is serving as current president and has been a member of the Culdrum Comets for the last nine years. He has won many FFA awards and has attended the FFA State Convention. In 2011, Fellbaum won the Region II FFA Dairy Evaluation Award and was involved in the Morrison County Fair Planning Committee. Fellbaum was one of the workers with the LFCHS garden project with Sister Ruth of St. Francis. This was the first year this endeavor was attempted, and it was a great success. Many pounds of food are being served to the students of the Little Falls Community schools lunch program.
“It is with great pleasure that I write this portrayal about the accomplishments of Alex Fellbaum as a fine student and school citizen. Alex truly brings a degree of maturity and strong work ethic to accomplish anything asked of him in the classroom,” said teacher Doug Ploof. “Whenever he enters the classroom you know as a teacher that he is bring his best to the classroom and will be expecting your best in return. He daily exemplifies leadership and guidance for his fellow students, showing the type of responsibility that his parents have expected of him his entire life. Alex has impressed me with his versatility and willingness to expand his horizons, joining the cross country team and being a leader in the FFA this year serving as the club’s president, His fellow classmates have also shown their esteem for him, as he was selected senior homecoming representative.”
Fellbaum’s accomplishments do not end at the classroom door. Last summer, he spearheaded the development and implementation of the school garden. He continually set the pace for the other students in anything needing to be done, and was never afraid to get dirty and finish whatever needed to be taken care of to make this first year project a resounding success.
“With Alex leading the summer work crew, under the direction of Sister Ruth Lentner, we were able to raise thousands of pounds of fruits and vegetables at the St. Francis campus. This produce was shared with all the students of our Little Falls Community Schools as part of the hot lunch program. In closing I feel Ales has a very bright future and will be an asset to the college of his choice,” said Ploof.
In addition to his school work and involvement in FFA, Fellbaum has also been busy with the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. He has served on the church’s youth group.
“My congratulations go out to Alex, Little Falls Exchange Club Boy of the Month for December. He is incredibly deserving of this distinction,” said teacher Lyn Gwost. “Alex was a student of mine in Intro to College Literature as a junior, and currently, he is enrolled in college composition I. Alex is a driven young man who works diligently to ensure his success after high school. Alex has been incredibility involved with extracurricular activates while a LFCHS. Be it athletics, FFA or his role as a link leader, Alex has made his impact while truly enjoying the high school atmosphere. I will miss Alex’s smile next year, but I have no doubt he will be grinning from ear to ear on the campus of North Dakota State University.”
Fellbaum enjoys hunting, fishing, attending live tock shows and hanging out with family and friends. He plans to attend North Dakota State University in Fargo to earn his degree in animal science or agricultural economics.
