Artesian

Katie Schmit was a recipient of one of the Category I Scholarships. She is from Artesian and is the daughter of Brenda and Robert Schmit. After graduating from Sanborn Central High School, she plans to attend South Dakota State University. Katie’s English teacher wrote, “Katie has an exceptional ability to meet every challenge, or obstacle, she encounters with an ever-present positive outlook. By using her positive attitude, she creates an encouraging social dynamic that benefits everyone she works with. In high school, Katie is involved in FFA (officer), student council (officer), National Honor Society, band, chorus, oral interpretation, drama, yearbook, volleyball, golf, basketball, and more. She is also a 4-H member and officer. She has won many awards and honors in all of these organizations and activities. In her community, she has organized and was the keynote speaker at the Veteran’s Day program, and has helped and organized various FFA, 4-H, and community activities. Katie plans to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner. In her essay she states, “I believe every person should know more about where their food comes from and how it is produced. I can play one more advantageous role in promoting our western heritage – I can serve as an advocate for agriculture with my patients and clients in the community and base my dietary and health recommendations on scientific facts and not the propaganda that seems to be so prominent on social media.”
