Continuing its 50-plus-year tradition, the Neillsville Kiwanis Club named Neillsville High School senior Mady Koprek as its March Junior Kiwanian. She is the daughter of Mike and Amy Koprek and Mandy Gathye. Koprek will participate in the club’s Monday meetings and will have an opportunity to experience the functions of a service club.
“A strong, diverse range of achievements, participation and volunteer activities mark this outstanding student’s high school career.” Neillsville Kiwanian Brent Shoup wrote in a press release.
Koprek is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Fine Arts Club and Spanish Club. Koprek has received multiple first-place medals at both district and state solo and ensemble competitions. She also was named to All Conference Choir as a senior and has participated in a school musical.
Athletically, Koprek has played basketball. She is in her third year of track and field and served as captain on this year’s volleyball squad.
She has volunteered in community service activities, including assisting at church and cancer benefit functions, clothing drives, various choir activities, human society fundraisers and brat sales. Additionally, Koprek has assisted at alumni volleyball tournaments and middle school track events.
Following graduation this spring, Koprek plans to attend University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to major in human biology. Her tong-term goal is to become either a physical therapist or a pediatrician and to focus on working with children.
“The Junior Kiwanian program gives recognition to outstanding students like Mady Koprek who have demonstrated strong academic achievement, shown good leadership qualities and strive to make use of their talents,” Shoup wrote. “Through their participation in the Junior Kiwanian program, students are provided an introduction to the concept of a service organization such as Kiwanis, which encourages active participation in the community throughout the lifespan.
“The Neillsville club wishes her continuing success in her future endeavors."
