Every year the Minnesota State High School League’s Triple “A” Award recognizes and honors high school seniors who have excelled academically, athletically and in the fine arts. To be eligible, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA, participate in League-sponsored athletics and fine arts activities, and comply with the MSHSL’s Student Code of Conduct.

Each member school is eligible to nominate two students – one male and one female. Faribault’s nominees for the 2018-19 school year are Kipp Bonde and Remy Lloyd. Four recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship and be recognized in March during the state basketball tournament.

Bonde is the son of John and Carmen Bonde. He has volunteered with Big Brothers, Big Sisters, is a four-year member of the band, and is active athletically as a member of the Falcon football, basketball and baseball teams.

Bonde owns a 3.72 GPA. He plans to attend Winona State University this fall and major in Mass Communications Creative Digital Media.

“Being involved in the athletics, arts and academics has really taught me many life lessons, like how to manage my time and build relationships with new people,” Bonde said. “When you are in these new activities you have to learn how to meet new people and build relationships. It has also taught me how to work with a team whether it is classmates, teammates or band mates, it’s all the same. My goal is to go into something where I can make videos or movies and have more of a creative job. The arts, and to an extent athletics, have inspired me to get into this.”

Lloyd is the daughter of Amy Lloyd. She has maintained a 4.0 GPA while taking college-level courses and participating in several extracurricular activities. She’s a member of the band and has competed on the soccer and track teams.

Lloyd plans to attend the United States Air Force Academy, major in Biology and play on the soccer team.

"As a student-athlete, I have had the opportunity to continually push myself to reach my goals. Practices and games, all on top of challenging courses, have all helped me learn how to manage my time well, de-stress, and prioritize my activities,” Lloyd said. “In addition, I have learned to set goals for myself and reach them using resources available to me. One of those goals being to attend the United States Air Force Academy, one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. The hard work and determination shown by my peers, coaches, and teammates has helped motivate me to achieve my own goals and pushed me be a role model myself.”
