MLHS names AAA award winners

Brandi Decker, daughter of Dale and Vicki Decker, and Ryan Finke, son of Ken and Janet Finke, have been selected as Maple Lake’s winners of the Academics, Arts and Athletics award.  The honor is extended annually to high school senior students who have outstanding accomplishments in the three areas of academics, arts and athletics, along with a record of volunteer activities and service to their communities. Schools are limited to nominating one male and one female student per year.


Exchange student’s visit is a learning experience

Maple Lake is a long way from Berlin, but Paul Blache considers the trip and the year he’s spending at Maple Lake High School an investment in his future.

Blache, a 17-year-old German exchange student, is a senior at MLHS and living, since his arrival on Labor Day weekend, with Charlie and Terri Malachek.

“I wanted to learn the language for a job in the U.S. later,” he said of his decision to spend a year in Maple Lake.

And of course, Maple Lake is considerably different from Blache’s home in Berlin, where he lives with father, Stefan; mother, Rufina; 13-year-old brother, Francisco; and 12-year-old brother, Johannes.

“It’s very different,” Blache said. “In the city, we have transportation such as buses to go where you want. Here, you have to wait for someone to pick you up in a car.”


Wright County Teens Against Tobacco training a success

Teens from seven Wright County school districts joined together at a two-day retreat at Camp Koinonia in South Haven for a Teens Against Tobacco Use (TATU) training on November 4-5.

The Retreat, which was sponsored by the Wright County Department of Public Health, brought the teens together so that they could learn the many dangers of tobacco use and the tolls that tobacco use takes on their communities.

The teens also learned how to effectively create and present an anti-tobacco lesson to other students in their communities. Additionally, participants worked on a variety of hands-on projects and listened to presentations from members of Buffalo's Allina Hospital, the Wright County Sheriff's Department, and Target Market.
