Activities
I am nominating Bayden Schneider as a Touchstone Energy Scholar. Bayden achieves at a very high level academically while taking multiple difficult high school and college classes that are preparing him for a world beyond the doors of Chester High School. He maintains a 4.0 with these difficult classes as he is really committed to his academics. He is also extremely busy being involved in many activities in and out of school such as baseball, football, basketball, 1-Act drama, chorus, band, FFA and Honor Society to name a few. He has earned 2 summer scholarships through South Dakota School of Mines and Technology due to his academic achievements and summer camps that he has been involved in with engineering. He has also mentored children during the school year giving back to the school and community and volunteering his time to help his elderly neighbors with multiple jobs from taking docks out to mowing and snow removal and working on their roofs and landscaping. Bayden also volunteers at his church with soup suppers, cleaning the church, and church breakfasts and serving the banquet in Sioux Falls as well. Bayden does all of this while being a fulltime (in the summer) lifeguard from April through August for the past 4 years. He is also CPR and WSI (water safety instructor) certified as a lifeguard. Bayden has also been involved with EmPower Youth Leadership Program through Sioux Valley Energy where he has learned about COOPs and community enrichment that he has brought back to the Chester Area School and community. Without reservation I recommend him for this honor as he is a student that is greatly involved in his community while maintaining high academic standards and being a leader for his classmates.
