  • Jenna’s school activities at St. Mary’s School include FFA, where she received the award for being the third top individual at the State FFA level. She has also received purple ribbons in both the local and regional science fairs and was a state science fair participant her freshman year.
     
    For two years she has held the office of class president and is currently the reporter for Sleepy Eye FFA.
    In addition, she has been involved in fall/winter danceline, Knowledge Bowl, math team and National Honor Society.
     
    In the community Jenna is a part of National Honor Society which collects food for the Sleepy Eye Food Shelf each Halloween and is a regular blood donor. She is also a Food for Kidz volunteer.
     
    In her free time Jenna enjoys reading, writing, crocheting and running. For the past year, Jenna has been employed by River Region Co-op as a clerk and also works at the Sleepy Eye Cenex Store.
     
    The personal values and strengths that Jenna said will help her succeed are hard work, perseverance and determination.
     
    “My strengths combined with my values will help develop my character into one that both employers and peers will come to rely on,” Jenna said.
     
    Jenna’s greatest influence in life is her mother, Daune Hoffmann.
     
    “She has instilled in me the belief that hard work can get you anywhere you want to be in life and that kindness and empathy are necessary skills to live in a world with other people,” Jenna said.
     
    Jenna went on to say that as a mother with four kids to raise, she has shown her that real strength can be gentle and caring.
     
    Jenna’s plans following graduation are to attend a four-year university to obtain a biochemical engineering degree and continue schooling to receive a Masters Degree and find a job where she can use her skills to develop waste recycling programs.
