Fifth grader has future on mind

At 11 years old, Kynlie Ladehoff has already realized the importance of trying hard in school.

“So you can get an education and find a good job and support your family,” said Ladehoff, who is a fifth grader at St. Francis Catholic School.

Her teacher, Peggy Davis, said there are plenty of things to like about the student including the fact that she’s a genuine person and a high achiever.

“She is also an upbeat student who is a collaborative worker,” Davis said.

Ladehoff said her favorite subject in school is math.

“I like fractions and multiplication,” she said.

When she’s not in school, Ladehoff is active in dance and plays softball.
