Standout Student: Providence’s Harrison Vetter
Providence Academy senior Harrison Vetter juggles school, sports, band and volunteering with expertise far beyond his years. He also plays football, runs track, is in the National Honor Society and is an Eagle Scout.
“You really gotta pay attention to your time and your schedule,” said Vetter, who is this week’s standout student.
Teachers say he’s also a great student to have in class.
“Is he a teacher’s dream,” asked Providence Academy teacher Anne McCulloch. “Yeah actually.”
Giving back as an Eagle Scout
If Vetter sounds like a Boy Scout, that’s because he is. He recently earned Eagle Scout status.
“I luckily found the adult day care center at the Minnesota State Veterans Home,” Vetter said. “I was able to make three flower/vegetable beds for them to enjoy and get a lot of use out of.”
Vetter hopes to continue to use his talents and gifts in a positive way.
“I’ve been given talents,” Vetter said. “It would be a waste of them to not give back and not help others who don’t have as many opportunities as I have.”
“I know that he will do something that’s for the good of society,” McCulloch said. “He’s really talented and skilled in his ability to think through things and help others.”
Religion and history are two of Vetter’s favorite topics and he hopes to be a lawyer one day.
As for college, Vetter hopes to go to Notre Dame and follow in the footprints of his father and grandfather who went to South Bend too.
“It’s also one of the premier universities in America, I think,” Vetter said. “You get the best of both worlds their with the academic excellence, big tier sports teams, the religious, Catholic aspect of it.”
