SHELLEY, Idaho -

38 weekly winners of the Distinguished Student Award were featured during the school year.

Mikaela Jensen will begin her freshman year at BYU-Idaho in the fall to study nursing. She says working with the elderly at her job at The Gables Assisted Living Center inspired her to become a nurse. This summer she will work at The Gables again.

"I was able to help my grandma and grandpa out a lot taking her to doctors appointments and stuff and it helped me realize I like working with the elderly and helping them get the care they need because they deserve it," Jensen said.
