January 2019 Student of the Month
Rebeka Daniel, daughter of Brian and Melanie Daniel, has been named January Student of the Month at Royalton High School (RHS). She has two younger siblings, Lukus and Lilieana, who are also students at Royalton.
Daniel listed her favorite class and teacher as Composition I with English teacher Ron Makela. “Mr. Makela pushes you to do and be your best, and no matter what is going on in your life he won't give up on you.”
“In the classroom, Rebeka is a leader, sharing ideas in discussions and offering assistance to her peers,” Makela said of Daniel. “While she has a very serious side that is hard-working and goal-oriented, she also shares her warm, personal side with her peers and teachers.
Math teacher Jeff Schoenrock said, “Rebeka is hard working, goal oriented, and determined. Rebeka will push herself to overcome any obstacle she faces. In my college Precalculus class Rebeka will work until she has figured out how things need to be done. She has always been very respectful and will help peers.”
Daniel is involved in Business Professionals of America (BPA), Cross Country, and Track and Field.
Rebeka says he favorite high school memory was the 2018 Pepe Fest for Homecoming where the juniors and seniors were throwing candy at each other.
Future Plans for Daniel include attending St.Catherine University where she will major in Exercise Science and Nutrition, and Minor in Physical Fitness.
Rebeka’s advice to freshmen is, “High school goes by quicker than you think, just relax, have fun, study hard, and love every bit of it.”
