Inter Lake, KRH partner in program to honor exemplary students

Print Article

In communities across Montana, there are students who are not only high achievers, but also are making an impact in their communities. Maybe this exemplary student is a club president, volunteers at the local food bank, or organizes fundraisers for those in need.

Over the course of the 2019-20 school year, the Daily Inter Lake, in cooperation with Kalispell Regional Healthcare, plans to recognize these top students and share their inspiring stories, via a monthly series called “Today’s Achievers, Tomorrow’s Leaders.”

Each month during the school year, a high school student will be featured in the local newspaper. Nominations will be reviewed and monthly winners will be chosen by a selection committee of KRH and newspaper staff. These nominations will be submitted by principals, school counselors, teachers and community members.

“We’re looking for students who are high achievers, but it’s more than that,” Daily Inter Lake Publisher Rick Weaver said. “We’re looking for teens who are leaders, making a difference in their communities.”

Dr. Craig Lambrecht, president and chief executive officer of KRH, said he hopes the series will spark conversations in the community.

“At KRH, our mission is to improve the health, comfort and lives of those we serve. We believe our youth are the future leaders in our community and want to recognize teens who are also nurturing healthier communities. By highlighting a teen — whether it be for school activities, volunteer work, community service or other initiatives — I hope it will inspire others to get involved in some way,” Lambrecht said.

The Daily Inter Lake is in the process of reaching out to area schools and homeschool associations to share details about the program. Principals, school counselors, teachers and community members are encouraged to nominate exemplary students to receive the honor by visiting krh.org/TomorrowsLeaders or dailyinterlake.com.
