Congratulations to Eastview juniors Laura Bestul and Rishabh Gupta for BOTH being named as one of the 32 STATEWIDE MSHSL ExCEL Award Recipients. The committee selected 16 males and 16 females from across the state and Laura and Rishabh were 2 of only 7 students recognized from the entire metro area! ExCEL – Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership – is a unique recognition program designed exclusively for Minnesota high school juniors who are active in school activities and community service, who show leadership qualities, and who are model citizens. An independent panel of judges from schools throughout Minnesota selected the State ExCEL Award recipients which included nominees from the over 500 member schools from across the state. State ExCEL winners will be recognized on KSTC-TV (Channel 45) during the upcoming winter state tournaments. Congrats Laura and Rishabh on your amazing accomplishment!
