LINGLE – First Quarter Dogger of the Quarter recipients were named earlier this year.
Junior Cordell Forkner, a name recognizable for his athletic participation, is being noticed for his hard work in the classroom, as a role model in the school, and for his continual dedication to hard work.
Cordell, the son of Martin and Elizabeth Forkner, is involved in football, basketball, and track, Cordell, who is modest, was surprised by his recognition.
Cordell’s presence on the court, field, and in the ring, has always been noticed, so to be awarded for something non-athletic was a complete shock to him. Cordell is humbled by this award and offers this advice to his fellow Doggers, “work hard, it is the only way to get anywhere in life”.
Lady Dogger of first quarter, Callie Fritzler, a junior, is the daughter of Leonard and Loreen Fritzler.
An avid member of the Dogger Community, Callie is involved in FBLA, STUCO, and FFA, and she works as a tutor for the After-School Program. Callie was chosen by LFL staff because of her distinguished character and willingness to help others. When told of her award Callie was honored and proud that she was being selected.
“Be involved in your school and community as much as you can. Don’t take high school for granted” are some words of wisdom she offers others.
