SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Cally Faulhaber is a 4.0 student at Plankinton High School who appreciates what teachers have done for her.

“I think the teachers are always welcoming and ready to teach us. And like the students, they just make it a fun atmosphere and want to come every day,” said Cally.

“Cally is a very good student. She’s very dependable. She’s very responsible. She always gets her work done, and she’s inquisitive and wants to improve herself,” said Plankinton teacher Ellen Hohbach.

Cally is involved in many activities.

“I’ve done student council, FCCLA. I’ve been in band and choir all four years. I’m in the National Honor Society. I’ve been in the one-act play,” said Cally.

“Cally has just really excelled. She’s a special person that has great leadership abilities,” said Ellen.

She has liked going to a small school.

“I’m glad I know everyone in my class. You can make friends with underclassmen and get to know your teachers on a personal level,” said Cally.

Cally is planning to go to college at South Dakota State.

“Cally is very goal-oriented, and she’ll be able to fit right in at college. She will excel in what she wants to do,” said Ellen.

“When I get to college, the professors aren’t going to work with you one-on-one all the time, so I’m glad my teachers pushed me,” said Cally.

For being named our Scholar of the Week, Cally gets a $250 scholarship from the Central Electric Cooperative, which is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
