Rachel Nesseth, senior at Kenyon-Wanamingo High School was recently selected the Region 1A Triple 'A' Award winner.

Established in 1988, the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League.

Nesseth was nominated by her school along with Alex Vold to represent K-W.

The award goes to high school seniors with a "B" or better grade point average and who participate in League-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities.

Now after being named the Region winner Nesseth will go to State next week.

The chance of her winning state have to be excellent because Rachel is the poster person for this award.

We learned on today's KDHL AM Minnesota Program she is a Choreographer for the KWHS play "The Drowsy Chaperone."

Nesseth told KDHL she has been involved in choreography for shows the past few years.
