There are several criteria a student must meet in order to be considered for the award like good grades and attendance, but we also look for intangibles like leadership skills, positive attitude, willingness to help others, and work ethic. Part-time Cosmetology student Amanda Maag has shown all of these qualities, and we are proud to present the January 2021 Student of the Month award to this Moorhead Minnesota native!
