Amelia Berg is the January student of the month at Park Rapids Area High School.

The daughter of Rosalynn and Carl Berg, Amelia has been class president, a peer mentor, a Panthers First mentor, and an academic letter winner. She has also participated in student council, gymnastics, cross country, Spanish club, National Honor Society, yearbook committee and the honor roll.

“I don’t know where she finds time for everything,” Principal Jeff Johnson quipped at the school board’s Jan. 19 meeting.

Johnson asked her parents, “Does she ever come home?” Rosalynn Berg replied, “Not really!”

Amelia plans to study for a university degree in diet and nutrition to become a sports nutritionist.


Business teacher Angie Kuehn said, “Amelia is such a good kid! She has always been so conscientious about her grades and works hard. She does a great job with balancing her activities and her academics and is just such a pleasant person. She is very deserving of this recognition.”

English teacher Tanya Miller said, “Amelia Berg is a hard-working student. She leads by quiet example, and she is a good friend to her peers. Amelia is the epitome of the phrase, ‘still waters run deep.’ Although she may not speak up much in class, she is observing, thinking, and analyzing. Her observations are astute.”

English teacher Kerry Johnson said, “I have enjoyed having Amelia both in class and as a leader in student council. In both, she works hard and really tries to include others. She isn't satisfied with just doing OK work; she pushes herself to be the best she can. Congrats, Amelia.”

Spanish teacher Jamie Simon-Linkowitz said, “When I had Amelia in class, she wowed me with her amazing work ethic. Yet, last year, as a prom committee participant, Amelia stunned me with her organizational skills, follow through, and continuous hard work. She stepped up to help whenever needed, came in on Fridays to prepare decorations, and just all-around made a huge impact on making sure Prom 2021 was a success! Amelia is a fabulous person, and I am so glad she is recognized as January's student of the month!”

Social studies Tom Coborn said, “Amelia is one of our top students in the school in academics and has an ambitious work ethic. She is always willing to do the hard work expected of her with no complaints. Amelia is reliable, always prepared, super organized and fun to be around. I am looking forward to hearing about her accomplishments in the next stage of her life.”
