December 2018 Student of the Month
Jackson Held, son of Joe and Janet Held, has been named the December Student of the Month at Royalton High School (RHS). He has an older brother, Ty, who graduated from RHS.
Held’s favorite class is math with Jeff Schoenrock because, “he makes it easy and fun.”
“I have had Jackson the last 2 years in both of my college math classes. He has excelled in my classes. He quickly grasps the concepts and then helps others in class understand it. He is able to explain things in a way others seem to understand,” said Schoenrock. “Jackson is very dedicated to RHS. I have not only witnessed him giving it his all in the classroom, I also see him daily in the workout center. He gave it his all in football this year and is doing the same in wrestling. All his hard work is paying off in the classroom, on the field, and on the mat. He is a positive role model for all the students and athletes in school. Jackson is very respectful, caring and hardworking.”
Social Studies teacher Jeremy Schaa said, “Jackson speaks with his actions not his words, and demonstrates what it looks like to be both a good student and a good person.”
Held’s activities include football, wrestling, and FFA.
A favorite high school memory for Jackson was the senior class winning the Homecoming Olympics.
Future plans for Held are to attend St.Cloud State University where he plans to study construction management. He will also continue his wrestling career at SCSU.
Jackson’s advice to freshmen is, “Do what has to be done; when it has to be done; as well as it can be done; do it that way all the time.”
