Student Bios


My name is Will DeNoyer, I am 18 years old, and I live in Sun Prairie. My parents are Brad and Jennelle DeNoyer and I am one of four kids. My siblings are: Olivia (22), Mason (21), and Ella (14). Although I like to compete in high school athletics, my biggest hobbies are playing guitar and doing outdoor things like hunting, fishing, or boating.
In addition to playing sports (football and basketball), I am heavily involved in other extracurriculars at Lakeside. This year I held two officer positions; I am the senior class president for our student government and the secretary for National Honor Society. I am also an active member in Teens For Christ and STEM Club. I am also excited for this spring as I will be in our school play for the first time.
Being involved in Teens For Christ and National Honor Society has given me great opportunities for community service. For example, our NHS participates in Adopt-A-Highway cleanup in Jefferson; done biannually. Teens For Christ hosts many events, but my favorite is New Friends Day. At New Friends Day, we invite special needs individuals from the community to campus for an afternoon filled with fun activities. Apart from my school clubs, I am involved in my church in Sun Prairie, Peace Ev. Lutheran, where I usher, play guitar, and sing during services.  
Following high school graduation, I will attend a university to study mechanical engineering. I have not yet decided which school but a few I am considering are: UW-Madison, Purdue, University of Colorado-Boulder, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While in college I plan on doing a semester abroad to gain valuable experience with people of different cultures and backgrounds.
It is a great honor to be able to represent my school as the March Student Rotarian. What makes this such an awesome honor is what the Rotary Club stands for: “Service above self.” I am excited for all that I will be able to learn from such respectable and experienced men and women.
Nick Carpenter

My name is Nick Carpenter, my parents are Scott and Gina Carpenter.  I am a senior at Lake Mills High School. I have one younger brother, Andy, who is a freshman this year.  I enjoy playing baseball and hanging out with friends and family. I also like the outdoors, especially fishing and hunting.  


Throughout high school I have been involved in Baseball (9-12), Basketball (9,10), French Club (9-12), Octagon Club (9), Senior Class Vice President (12), Prom King (11), Link Crew (12).  I have also been in Band for four years and have worked at Ace Hardware in Lake Mills for the past two years.


I really enjoy Link Crew because it helps the freshman get involved with school activities and it helps them learn the routines at Lake Mills High School. I also enjoy Student Council and being involved with the decision making on all the events for Lake MIlls High School.


Growing up in Lake Mills, I have been involved in several community activities.  They include the following:


Through my Church, I have helped with dinners at various events.  I helped in putting together College care packages and Easter Baskets for elementary kids.  I also was a server for mass for three years.


I have helped with the Youth Baseball Camps in the Winter as they prepare for their upcoming spring season.  I have also been a youth baseball umpire for the Lake Mills Little League.


After graduation, I plan on attending the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point to study either Natural Resources or Engineering and to play baseball.  


Being selected as a Student Rotarian would be a great opportunity to be more involved in the Lake Mills community and to learn more about what the Lake Mills Rotary club does.  I know I would enjoy attending the meetings and gaining educational experience in preparing me for the future.


Alexis Topel


My name is Alexis Topel my parents are Dan and Lisa Topel. I’m a senior at Lake Mills High School and I have been in this school district since kindergarten. I have two siblings who also attended school in our district, my brother will be a sophomore and my sister will be in eighth grade. I’m involved in a lot of in school and out of school activities from sports to student council. I enjoy working out and drawing on my free time when I’m not running around with sports and other activities. I have a high interest in business mainly accounting or possibly sport management. Both of those things I’m fairly good at but also find the joy in them. Throughout my three years of high school I’ve been apart of Softball and Basketball my junior year of both sports I was a captain and will work to continue that role my senior year. For softball I was named All Conference Honorable mention my sophomore year, junior year I was named All Conference First Team. Freshman year I was given the golden glove award which names you the best fielder on the team with the best fielding percentage. For basketball I was named team player of the year award for all of my leadership through my season. This year will be my fourth year playing on varsity for both sports. I have learned so much from being a leader to dealing with hard times of adversity. If I hadn’t been involved in these to sports I would not be the person I’m today. My freshman year I was apart of the volleyball team and I learned that I loved the sport but the team concept of the sport just wasn’t for me. I still enjoy going and supporting the volleyball team. Sophomore year I was apart of the Cross Country team and ran as our teams #2 and #3 runner which isn’t easy to do but I had my mind set on it.

Outside of sports I enjoy being apart of student council, ELM club, S.C.A.P.E.and octagon club. Throughout high school I have been involved in multiple different clubs and teams but those are the ones I have been most involved in. I helped starting S.C.A.P.E. my sophomore and junior year of high school with three other girls in my grade. We wanted to start this club to help our fellow student become more aware and just to learn a little bit more about what our teacher and staff do for us. Student Council is also another club that I’ve been every committed to the last three years, I was class vice-president from freshman year to junior year. From planning homecoming to all our small school activities I have been behind the scenes making them happen. Prom was the first large activity I had been apart of, another classmate and I were able to be the head of Prom and lead it. Which was a huge responsibly but so fun and enjoyable to be apart of. Octagon club I have been apart of all of high school and it one of the most fun clubs to be in, from planning to making things happen. We get involved in a lot of activities with the school and the community. Octagon has been a big step for me getting more involved outside of school from doing the gifts at Christmas time for families or the Easter egg hunt. Seeing how much your doing for the community and all the smiles on their face just makes me to keep getting involved. Also, with my church is another way I have got involved by doing the food pantry and driving around collecting food. The tour of homes was a big thing I was apart of my freshman year, I spent the whole day giving a tours for a family in Lake Mills home. Definitely was a unique experience that I would definitely volunteer for again.

After high school I plan to attend a four year university in Wisconsin or Minnesota, I hope to continue my softball career to the next level also. I plan to major in Accounting and minor in sports management. Having these two has a major and minor I hope that I will be a fairly useful person in the business world. The three universities I have applied to have very good business school with great internship opportunities. Being a paw manager for our school this year will hopefully help me get a slight look at the real life accounting that I plan to get into in the future.

Being a Student Rotarian would help me grow a lot in the next year to just learn to put yourself out there and get involved in the community. All of the community activities and the business community opportunities that are given will just help me build for my future. It will give me a look of what I should continue to be involved in and share. It wouldn’t only benefit me in the future with getting involved but it will also help me realize what a beautiful community I’ve grown up in and something I will want to continue to be involved in. Being involved in charity and volunteering activities just lighten my day to see other happy and I would love to belong in a club where I have thousands of opportunities to do so.
