November 2018 Student of the Month
Gavin Suska, son of Mark and Jessica Suska, has been named the November Student of the Month at Royalton High School (RHS). Gavin has a younger brother Grayson, who is a sophomore at Royalton.
Suska’s favorite teacher was former social studies teacher Kelley Newell. “She involved students in class well, and related topics to real life examples. She also created very interactive projects that kept students intrigued in the subject,” Suska said of Newell.
English teacher Sherri Menden said, “Gavin's work ethic stands as one of his strongest traits. He is never one to give up, and he asks questions when he needs clarification or help. Gavin is respectful of all students and willing to help out anyone who needs it, the struggling as well as the talented. He knows how to help in ways that make students understand what needs to be done. Above all, Gavin is kind.”
Science teacher and head boys basketball coach Randy Thielges added, “Gavin has been an outstanding student/athlete. He is a leader both in the classroom and on the athletic fields. Gavin makes the people around him better.”
Suska is involved in many activities in school including, football, basketball, baseball, Business Professionals of America, and Student Council.
Gavin’s favorite memory from high school is winning the Morrison County “milk jug” this past year in football.
Future plans for Suska are to attend Concordia college to pursue a career in accounting.
Gavin’s advice to freshmen is, “Take high school one year at a time and be involved in as many activities as you can.”
