MSHSL names Pierz student as state recipient of ExCEL award
Landon Schomer, a student at Pierz Healy High School, was chosen as a Minnesota State High School League state recipient for the 2020 ExCEL award.
ExCEL — standing for Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership — is a recognition program designed for Minnesota high school juniors. Students who are active in fine arts and/or athletic activities, who show leadership qualities and who are model citizens in their community are eligible for the award. ExCEL Award recipients are selected through a multi-level process that involves league member schools and an independent panel of judges from schools throughout Minnesota.
Profiles of each recipient will be aired throughout the broadcast of the winter tournaments. Schromer will be honored during halftime at 2 p.m. March 14 during the state girls basketball tournament.
