She also volunteers with the Girls on the Run program at the elementary school and provides mentoring to younger students.

After graduation, Voelker plans to attend South Dakota State University to pursue a degree in 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 seventh year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program.
