Andrew Thompson was named as the Little Falls Community High School (LFCHS) Boy of the Month for February. He is the son of Keith and Darla Thompson of Little Falls.
Thompson excels in sports and academics in school. He is on the soccer and golf teams, lettering in soccer. Thompson is a member of the National Honor Society, is on the A honor roll and is in the top 10 students in his class. He also participates in Flyer Christian Athletes (FCA) and Target. In the community, Thompson is involved with Oasis Share A Meal and his church.
Ann Graeve, Thompson’s school adviser and chemistry teacher, said his “smile is genuine, his questions are thoughtful, and his humor is one of a kind.”
Spanish teacher Nancy Leisenheimer said, “Andrew believes at this point that math and statistics will be his chosen fields of study. His strengths with numbers have always been apparent. However, I don’t believe that those represent the complete picture: his talents with Spanish (and music and sports) till the missing pieces to a wellrounded individual. He can use his Spanish to communicate and create. He can use his Spanish to express humor. Spanish has always been approached with facility and with fun by Andrew, rounding out the numbers guy to a whole and uniquely innovative guy.”
Leisenheimer, who knows Thompson as “Pepe” in Spanish class, said she will sorely miss his “Hola, Leisy!” greeting when he enters her classroom.
Thompson plans to attend North Central University to major in math.
Boys of the Month are selected by Little Falls Community High School staff, and are awarded scholarships by the Little Falls Exchange Club.
