Herter student of the year

Kelsey Herter, Detroit Lakes, was among 10 Mayville State University students who were named students of the year during the annual Academic and Student Senate Awards Program held Saturday, May 4. The annual program provides a time when students who have excelled in academics and leadership are honored.

Kelsey graduated this spring with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. While on campus, she was a member of the Student Senate, Science Club, Music Club, Student Education Association, and Residence Hall Association. She also participated in the concert band and stage band, and was a resident assistant in the residence halls. She is the daughter of Dawn and Sonny Chase and Joe and Erin Herter.

Through the Student of the Year Award, the Mayville State University Student Senate annually honors those students who have made significant contributions to Mayville State by their involvement and participation in a variety of activities and organizations. Students may be nominated by faculty, staff, or fellow students.

After completing a brief data form, each nominated student is interviewed by members of the Student Affairs Committee and final selections are made by that committee.
