Abbie Hlas

Abbie Hlas is one of the September Kiwanis Students of the Month. She is the daughter of Jerry and Christina Hlas and has a GPA of 3.9.

Abbie’s favorite classes include Algebra II, P.E. and English.  Activities she’s involved in are volleyball, basketball, softball, FCA, and NHS. “I’ve learned how to work with people, and how to put in extra work and see the benefits,” she said.

Outside of school, Abbie volunteers at her church during spring break and any time they need help. After high school, she is planning on attending Winona State in Minnesota to play softball. She is undecided on her major but is planning to minor in coaching.

Abbie’s advice to others is “put in the work even when you don’t feel like it. You will not regret it.” She believes that she was honored as Kiwanis Student of the Month because “I’m a good student who is not afraid to do what needs to be done and get my hands dirty.”

In recognition of her achievements, Kiwanis of Adel has donated $50 to the ADM Scholarship Foundation.
