The Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference (NMRC) recently announced the 2021 Conference All-Academic Team and three Frazee students made the grade.

Paige Schaefer, Josh Boyer and Sam Stockstrom met the requirements to earn the accolade. Schaefer is a senior, while Boyer and Stockstrom are freshmen involved with the Frazee-Vergas School District’s KAOTIC robotic program.

The NMRC All-Academic Award program recognizes the academic excellence of participating high school students in the Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference. To earn NMRC All-Academic Team honors, a student must possess a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher (based on a 4.0 scale) for the  current school year. The honor is open to students in grades 9-12. 

In addition to the GPA requirement, a student must meet all varsity level “Lettering” requirements set by their team or school district as well. Students are able to receive this award on an annual basis.

The conference consists of 29 teams across the Northern part of the state along with two teams from North Dakota. Earning the fourth annual academic award were 94 students from 18 different teams. 

“We at the NMRC are delighted to celebrate the great academic accomplishments our students have made,” said Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference  President Jesse Frost.
