Principal Greeting

Cardinal Head Senior High Student of the Month

The staff at Upsala High School are proud to announce Stefani Pohlman as the October Student of the Month.  She is a senior at UHS.  She is the daughter of Mary Sharp and William Pohlmann. She has one brother, Shawn.

Pohlmann has earned several high school honors including previous Student of the Month nominations, being on the A Honor Roll, and being nominated for the Excel Award. She has committed to serving her community through many National Honor Society volunteer activities. She also sings in her church choir and teaches a 9th grade religion class. Pohlmann has also shown leadership qualities as Student Council and National Honor Society Presidents and as Volleyball and Basketball Team Captains. Pohlmann is truly a role model for other students.

Pohlmann has participated in Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Student Council, National Honor Society, and Drama Club. She says that her favorite class has been precalculus because she enjoys math. She feels that her most valuable class has been English Composition, because she believes that she will use the skills she has learned in the class throughout the rest of her life. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also holds a part-time job at Lange Oil in Upsala.

After high school, Pohlmann plans to attend college for a degree in a math related field. She will then see where life leads. Her advice for her classmates is "Stay positive throughout any situation, because you can't have a bad day with a good attitude."

Cardinal Head Junior High Student of the Month

Ty Poppenhagen was chosen as the October 2017 Junior High Student of the Month. Ty is in 7th grade. He is the son of Chad and Amy Poppenhagen. His siblings are Ari and Kira.

Poppenhagen is involved in Basketball and Football. He has spent time in community service raking leaves for his church cemetery.
