Nathan Buisker earns award from Heartland and KJAM Radio

Sioux Valley High School (SVHS) senior Nathan Buisker’s impressive resume includes seven state superior awards for oral interpretation, three trips to the state golf tournament, all-state choir participation and more.

Now Buisker can add another accolade to his list of achievements: Heartland and KJAM Radio’s Student of the Month.

In nominating him for the award, SVHS officials praised Buisker for his commitment to various activities.

In addition to oral interp, golf and choir, Buisker also participates in theater and band, including jazz, pep and marching. He’s also a member of student council, Boyz in Blue and the National Honor Society.

Buisker also received nods for his volunteerism. He has helped with youth golf for four years and assisted teachers with school preparations for two years.

Nathan is the son of Paul and Kelli Buisker. After high school, he plans to attend South Dakota State University to study Pharmacy.

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 ninth year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program
