ELMWOOD, WI --The Elmwood High School Athletic Department is proud to announce the selection of Alyssa Peterson and Nic Forster as this year’s Dunn-St Croix Conference Scholar Athletes.  Each member school district within the Dunn-St Croix Conference is invited to nominate one boy and one girl for scholar athlete honors.  Criteria for selection include grade point, number of varsity letters earned during the high school career, individual awards, and participation in lead-up competition to the State Tournament. 

These two Raider student-athletes, Alyssa Peterson and Nic Forster will receive recognition at the conference level and were honored as Elmwood Dunn-St Croix Conference Scholar Athletes at the 4th annual Dunn-St Croix Conference Scholar-Athlete banquet at Stout Ale House in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Wednesday, April 3. This program was begun by the athletic directors of the Dunn-St Croix Conference in order to honor athletes in each school for their academic as well as their athletic success.

The keynote speaker at the banquet was Colleen Heimstead. All of the chosen student athletes attended the banquet with their families and the role models that they chose to recognize to celebrate this night with them.

Congratulations to Alyssa and Nic on this well-earned honor!
