The award is presented at the banquet to one member of each schools graduating class who has demonstrated ‘Service Above Self’ in their attitude in school, the community and their own personal development. Service Above Self award winners this year include: Mikyla Denney from New Ulm High School, Monica Illikman of New Ulm Cathedral, and Abigail Koelpin from Minnesota Valley Lutheran.
