Michael Fregin, son of Roger and Kris Fregin, has been chosen as the Little Falls Community High School (LFCHS) Boy of the Month for March.
Fregin carries a 3.51 grade point average and is involved in a variety of high school athletics, including baseball and football, earning varsiety letters and two years of basketball. Fregin is also a member of the Flyer Athletic Leadership Council (FALC), was a homecoming representative and was a member of band during his high school career, earning a varsity letter in that field as well.
“Michael is one amazing young man,” said science teacher and coach Debra Yliniemi-Ahlin. “As his classroom teacher, I have seen Michael as a caring individual, willing to help out his fellow classmates on difficult tasks or laboratory concepts that others may not comprehend.”
She said one of his strongest attributes is his willing ness to work hard.
“He is a very dedicated and determined student/athlete,” Yliniemi-Ahlin said. “Michael is a respectful, sincere young man with a friendly personality and positive attitude.”
Director of Bands Jonathan LaFlamme, said Fregin is a positive role model for younger band students.
“He is very talented, works with passionate diligence and is extremely humble,” said LaFlamme. “This combination of characteristics is very uncommon in my experience working with music students.”
Any endeavor Fregin has been involved with in band, LaFlamme said will be “excellent and the process will be one that produces an overabundance of positive group edification. I am excited to see the success that Michael will achieve after high school and the affirmation he will bring to the lives of others.”
In the community, Fregin volunteers for the county’s Relay for Life and for Community Services, helping out with the baseball program.
During his spare time, Fregin enjoys baseball, basketball, hockey, football and weightlifting.
Following high school graduation, he plans to attend Concordia College in Moorhead and along with his studies, will play baseball.
