Anna Boeckermann was named the Upsala Junior High School Student of the Month for May. She is the daughter of Pete and Joan Boeckermann and the sister of Gretchen, Jon, David, Amanda, Holly, Hope, Bethany, Zac, and Noah.
Boeckermann participates in basketball and volleyball and has been named a member of the “B” Honor Roll. Outside of school, she works as a babysitter for many families.
Health is Boeckermann’s favorite class because students have fun while learning. She feels volleyball was the most valuable activity because she was able to spend time with her friends and learn how to work as a member of a team.
Basketball coach, Amber Kalthoff, said, “Anna was a wonderful team player. She made sure she included everyone and 100 percent effort with a smile on her face. She never gave up on herself or her team.”
Boeckermann’s future plans are to become a teacher. To her classmates, she offers this advice: “Always try your best and never give up.”
