The World Language Department at Sauk Prairie Middle School selected Amada (Abby) Ballweg as the April Sauk Prairie Optimist Middle Level Leader.  She is the daughter of Matt and Lola Ballweg. Abby has been a Spanish student for two years at Sauk Prairie Middle School.  Currently, she is enrolled in the Spanish 1 course and excels on a daily basis.  Abby was nominated by her world language teacher, Señora Miller. "Abby is a student who sets high goals for herself and is a role model for everyone.  It is impressive to share that Abby has had no late work the entire academic year and her work always reflects quality time and effort. On written unit exams, Abby's work is exemplary.  Abby is also a kind person who is willing to help out others during class activities and is respectful of all the abilities of her peers. When group projects are assigned, Abby uses her resources and completes outstanding projects.  She is a responsible and a dependable classmate everyone can count on." Outside of the classroom, Abby has been active in volleyball for four years and trapshooting for eight years (with three years on the high school team).  Abby also shows her leadership skills in her role as a Sauk Prairie Middle School mentor and she is also a student in an advanced math course. If you drive by the Ballweg family farm, chances are that you will see Abby working hard doing her chores.
