When it comes to golf, Century High School senior Logan Schoepp doesn’t try his best just to win.

The junior champion of the North Dakota Golf Association knows that playing first on the team means he has to be a role model for his younger teammates.

English teacher Maureen McDaniel said Schoepp is an excellent student who always strives for excellence, and his dedication to his goals and friendly personality make him a great leader.

“In my 25 years of teaching experience, I have encountered few students of Logan’s work ethic, determination and positive attitude,” McDaniel wrote in a letter of recommendation. “Logan is an exceptional student, leader and person.”

Mike and Linda Schoepp’s son from Bismarck is the Teen of the Week this week. Thirty-two high school students will be recognized by spring, when a Teen of the Year will be selected among the weekly winners to receive a $ 5,000 scholarship sponsored by MDU Resources Group.

Schoepp started playing golf when he was around 10 years old. He joined the Century varsity team as a freshman and has been the team captain since his junior year.

“The junior year was really fun. There were no seniors on our team last year so I went ahead knowing I was going to have to be a leader, ”he said. “I knew I was going to play some of the best guys and I had to prove myself.”

At the end of that season, it looked like he had done just that. Schoepp placed fifth in the state and was selected as an All-WDA, All-State and All-Conference selection.

The college hopeful said he looks forward to playing golf to the next level and continuing to develop as a player and as a person. For now, his goal for his last season in high school is to play well and enjoy being with his team.

“My coaches have told me I’m capable of playing at this level, but for me it’s just another round or just another game. It hasn’t really touched me yet, ”he said.

Schoepp also dedicates his time to being the main captain of the Science Olympiad team. Since seventh grade, Schoepp has participated in a variety of events in which he has built bridges, vehicles, ping-pong parachutes, and airplanes. Although he’s already finished second and third in State, he hopes this will be the year he leads Century to the national championships.

Schoepp is a member of the National Honor Society and has been selected to participate in the Student Leadership Network through the Bismarck Chamber of Commerce. He said these experiences gave him a greater appreciation for his community.

For the past three years, Schoepp has worked at Hawktree Golf Course and was recently promoted to Director of Field Operations.

“I’m a golfer so it’s perfect for me,” he said. “I always play golf in the summer anyway, so when I’m up there I work or play golf. “

The Straight Student A maintains a GPA of 4.1 while challenging himself with the Advanced Placement courses. Schoepp plans to pursue studies in accounting or finance. He did not choose a school but is considering Bemidji State University.
