(ST. PAUL, MN)—Fillmore County Commissioner Duane Bakke, Past President of the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC), selected Samantha Kiehne, a Fillmore Central High School Senior, to receive the $1500 AMC Student Scholarship during AMC’s Legislative Conference in St. Paul, March 21.

Candidates for the scholarship must demonstrate excellence in the classroom, actively participate in intra- and/or extra-curricular activities and serves as a role model for his or her peers. The scholarship recipient must also share the AMC vision of a future that contains active civic participation, community pride and a sense of community responsibility.

Kiehne has been involved in many activities and clubs that have included the National Honor Society, Scholar Club, SADD, Radio Show, Spanish Club, Newspaper, and delivering Meals on Wheels. Her interests gravitate toward music and the arts, which prompted her to join the Fillmore Central High School Choir and Tapestry Choral Group.

Kiehne was instrumental in bringing back the activity of cheerleading at the high school after it had been cut two years prior. She was chosen for the court of Miss Harmony as Miss Congeniality and is a member of the Harmony Arts Board.

Outside of school, Samantha is involved with a number of volunteer activities through her church, including a mission trip to New Orleans.

She will attend the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, majoring in chemistry at the college of liberal arts.

AMC is a voluntary statewide organization of Minnesota’s 87 counties that helps provide effective county governance to the people of Minnesota. Through intergovernmental relations, communications and education, AMC seeks to improve the operation of Minnesota’s county governments and the services that counties provide to their citizens.
