MIchael Skinner is busy filling out scholarship forms and preparing for his bright future

LAPWAI, ID - KLEW cares about you, and that's why each week during the school year we team up with Lewiston Orthopaedic Associates to highlight an outstanding local high school student.

Tonight, Sophia Miraglio introduces us to Lapwai high School Senior Michael Skinner.

You can hear this Lapwai Wildcat roar, as a student body president, active member in business professionals and community volunteer. His name is Michael Skinner, a senior at Lapwai High School, and this week's Academic All-star

"All the staff members here, their extremely helpful in my studies both in high school and both outside of high school too," said Michael.

And going on after high school won't be difficult for Michael who has a 3.9 GPA. So where does he want to go? His top schools are the University of Idaho and Oregon State University.

"I'm kind of interested in working with computers and information systems, so I think they're both really good colleges and I like the areas of study they offer," said Michael.

And while the senior is busy filling out scholarship forms and preparing for his bright future, he's also embracing his last year as a Wildcat.

"I'll miss all my friends and everyone here at the high school the most," said Michael.

Congratulations Michael, for all you've achieved and will achieve and for being this week's Academic All-Star.
