A talented saxophonist, Drew participates in concert, marching and jazz bands. She also keeps stats for the volleyball team and was named Homecoming Queen in 2020.

Outside of school, Drew is involved in church camp Teens Encounter Christ and the youth group at Living Hope Wesleyan Church. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.

Alexis is the daughter of Dave and Tracey Drew of Madison. After high school she plans to attend South Dakota State University and pursue a degree in elementary education with an endorsement in special education.

The “Student of the Month” is awarded through a partnership of Heartland and KJAM Radio in Madison and recognizes exceptional students in one of five area school districts. Heartland provides wholesale power to the cities of Arlington, Colman, Howard, Madison and Volga, all of which are in the KJAM listening area.

Each month of the school year, Heartland presents an outstanding student from one of these schools with a recognition certificate and small token, and advertisements announcing the winning student air on KJAM Radio. Officials from each participating school nominate students for the award.

This is the tenth year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program.
