Stefani Pohlmann has been named the Upsala High School (UHS) Senior Student of the Month for May. She is the daughter of Bill and Mary Pohlmann, and the sister of Shawn.
Pohlmann is involved in student activities at UHS as a member of the Student Council, Drama Club and band. She is also a member of the UHS volleyball, basketball, softball and Knowledge Bowl teams.
Pohlmann has been on the “A” Honor Roll, and also represents her class on the UHS Student Council. She has been named a Subject Area Student of the Month many times and has received recognition as an Academic All-Star.
The senior’s favorite class is math, because she said she understands the concepts and enjoys the class time. Pohlmann feels that English/language arts is the most valuable class because she feels that she is learning concepts that she will use for the rest of her life.
“Stefani is an exceptional student with a great attitude. She is a joy to have in class because she strives to do well on every assignment and never complains. She is a great leader for her classmates and is very deserving of the recognition,” said math teacher Jessica Hovland.
In addition to her active school life, Pohlmann enjoys playing basketball with her family and playing summer softball. She is employed part-time at Lange Oil in Upsala.
After high school, she would like to become a movie star and become rich while having a happy family. Her advice to her classmates is, “Never be afraid to be in a certain activity because they will all make great memories.”
