Freshman Charlie Kurowski has been chosen as the Swanville Schools April Student of the Month for grades 7-9. He is the son of Frank and Michelle Kurowski. Although Charlie is only a freshman, he has certainly been active throughout his high school career so far. He has played football, basketball and baseball since seventh grade. Charlie also became involved with the theatre productions last year as an eighth grader and continued those endeavors this year. Charlie has been on the honor roll since first quarter of seventh grade and continues to do very well academically.
“I have had the wonderful opportunity of being Charlie’s science teacher this past year,” said Char Bzdok, Science teacher. “In this time Charlie has shown that he is a wonderful student who takes pride in his homework and academics. Not only is he a sound student, he also displays a sense of humor that is appreciated by myself as well as his classmates. Charlie is definitely deserving of this award.”
Outside of school Charlie is active in volunteering his time, helping with coaching elementary basketball and football and also helping to pick up ditches. He has a multitude of interests outside school, enjoying basketball, baseball and football, both as a participant and a spectator. He likes to spend time with friends and also spends time chicken farming and raising calves.
Tom Bzdok, social studies teacher adds, “Charlie is a unique student to have in class. He is friendly with all his classmates and has a way of making everyone feel at ease. He has a friendly way of going about his business that makes you chuckle and say “he’s quite the guy.” Charlie always seems to be in a good mood with a positive attitude. This transfers to his classmates as well. Charlie also sets high academic standards for himself. He works hard to do the best he can and isn’t satisfied unless he has put his best effort forth. Charlie is the type of student who will achieve success in whatever he pursues. Congratulations Charlie.”
Charlie plans to go to college to be a mechanic or to go into farm management. He wants other students to know to “get your work done on time and pay attention in class.”
