Kaitlyn Kirchner of Madelia, was recently awarded a $750 Zonta Club of Mankato's Young Women in Public Affairs Award.
Kirchner was named as the award's recipient because of her many leadership roles as a student at Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial Secondary School and as a member of 4-H, especially in building the Madelia Community Fruit Trees project.
Kirchner plans to pursue a degree in medical biology and to eventually have a career in functional medicine.
The goal of the award program is to encourage young women to participate in public affairs.
