Foreign exchange student talks to Optimists


Barbara Gautier, a foreign exchange student at Sauk Prairie High School this year, shared information on her homeland at the April 6 Sauk Prairie Optimist meeting. Gautier talked about France’s history, holidays, government, schools, food, famous writer Jules Vern and about her hometown of Nantes, which is on the west side of France and 2 hours from Paris. The most interesting section was about her school schedule. It is the same schedule every week but not every day. On Mondays she goes to school from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., for example. Sports and activities are outside of school. The membership had many questions for her! Barbara has been active in several school activities and recently took part in Sauk Prairie Theater Guild’s A Night of Comedy Shorts in the play “The Very Unmerry Adventures of Robin Hood.” Pictured, Optimist member Joy Pulsfus, Barbara Gautier, SPHS foreign exchange student, and Bart Mauch, Sauk Prairie Optimist President, on April 6 at the JAybird Cafe’,

He was honored at the Optimist meeting held on April 6, 2022. Lane was nominated by his Agriculture teacher Mr. Talford and his Tech Ed teacher Mr. Brickl who stated, “Lane Albers was nominated by the Agriculture & Tech Ed Departments for his continued commitment and dedication to our programs. When selecting candidates for this award, we typically look for students who go above and beyond the daily expectations in our classrooms and shops. Lane is one of those individuals that when you ask for him to do something, he will complete it to your expectations (and oftentimes exceeding). We also look for students who show great progress with their content knowledge in our area and Lane certainly picks up things naturally in our areas. You can always count on his assistance to help other students in class when they may need help with a project or understanding concepts. For these reasons, the Agriculture and Tech Ed Department are proud to select Lane Albers as the Middle Level Leader.” At school, Lane is involved in FFA and wrestling. Outside school, he participates in football and 4H. He also enjoys working on the farm and doing snow removal. In the future, Lane would like to pursue a career in agriculture and farming.

Jorge Olivares is student of the month


The SP Optimist Club’s April Student of the Month is Jorge Olivares, a SPHS senior and the son of Katie and Eusebio Olivares. He was selected, according to SPHS Assistant Principal Shane Been, because “he has persisted through personal and academic struggles and, as a senior, has developed into a thoughtful and compassionate young man. He is a leader in class discussions and an insightful observer of society. He will do really good things along the way.” Jorge’s passion is welding fabrication. He is part of a welding apprenticeship program and heads to a local welding fabrication shop after school every day. He wants to work in this field after high school.

This summer the Black Earth Historical Society (BEHS) will have the Museum at the Depot building painted. This re-painting will be the most extensive since it was painted in 1992-3 when the BEHS first received the Depot. A repainting was done a decade or more ago by local boy scouts.
