Mohr, Alex (October Junior Kiwanian - October 2014)
Serving the youth of the community and helping to ensure that they have the encouragement and support to meet life’s challenges is a central focus of Kiwanis clubs across the nation. At the local level, clubs engage in activities and projects that help to carry out this mission. A good example of this commitment to youth is the Junior Kiwanian program, which has been an ongoing feature of the club for more than 50 years.
As the first Junior Kiwanian for this school year, the Neillsville Kiwanis Club is pleased to have Alex Mohr in attendance at Monday meeting for the month of October. He is the son of Al and Deb Mohr and is a senior at Neillsville High School. He was introduced to club members by Kiwanian Herman Seebandt at the Oct. 6 meeting at the American Legion.
Often with high-achieving students, Mohr has put forth the effort to excel at academics, athletics and in numerous extra-curricular activities throughout his time in high school. H e is a member of the National Honor Society, the Spanish Honor Society, has spent four years on Student Council, including years as president and vice president, and served three years as class officer.
Extra-curricular activities include six years in band, with participation at the state level in solo ensemble competitions, and active involvement with the Clark County Town & Country Partners 4-H Club, where he has entered computer art in the fair. Athletically, Mohr will be a four-year member of the track and field team as a pole vaulter.
In the community, he is a active in St. Mary’s Catholic Church as an altar server and sits on the Neillsville Improvement Committee. He has put his interest in computer art and graphic designing posters and shirts for school clubs, painting a mural in the school commons and creating a logo for the Thirsty Bookworm. Mohr is also employed part-time as a clerk at Sniteman Pharmacy.
As expected from this highly-motivated student, he has plans to pursue a degree in art and possibly computer science at UW-Madison next fall, with a career goal of becoming a graphic, web or game designer.
The Junior Kiwanian program of the Neillsville Kiwanis Club gives recognition to outstanding senior students, provides an introduction to the concept of a service organization and emphasizes active participation in the community throughout the lifespan. Welcome Alex Mohr as Junior Kiwanian.
