SHS senior wins Faith in Action scholarship
The person who played a large part in Stough-ton High School senior Annalise Panthofer’s faith couldn’t be there to watch her receive the scholarship that she got by following his example.“My grandpa had played a huge role in my faith jour-ney throughout my entire life, always exuding con-ditional kindness to every-one,” said Panthofer, a member of St. Ann Parish. “He volunteered through-out his entire life and often brought me with. I was able to follow by example and carry forward basic Chris-tian values.”Panthofer was awarded the Youth Faith in Action on Nov. 5 by Catholic Charities and received her award at the Madison Mar-riott West. The scholarship of $500 is awarded to two high school seniors, one girl and one boy, in the Madison Diocese each year for the past four years.Her grandfather was a member of the Monona Kiwanis, so as he did char-ity work for local projects like Adopt-A-Highway, food pantries and the Sal-vation Army.Panthofer would often tag along, finding joy in volunteering as he did.“My favorite thing to do was ring bells during the Christmas season with him through the Salvation Army,” Panthofer said.There were about 500 people in attendance to see Panthofer receive the scholarship. Some of those in attendance from St. Ann to support Pan-thofer were religious edu-cation Coor-dinated Cath-ie Truehl, retired priest Msgr. Gerard Healy, cur-rent priest Fr. Randy Bud-nar, former Journey of the Heart coordinator Tom All-cox and religious education teacher Sue Jorgenson.Panthofer figured that she would be a worthy can-didate for the scholarship when she first heard about it during a confirmation class.“I knew I’d be a fairly decent candidate based off my past three trips on Jour-ney of the Heart at the time and my years of elemen-tary school at St. Ann’s School,” Panthofer said.Applicants were required to write an essay about how they have brought faith to their parishes, schools, home and communities and the ways they live out their faith.“Through Journey of the Heart, our church’s annual mission trip, I’ve learned valuable lessons by serving disadvantaged communities throughout the U.S. I’ve learned that a lending hand to those in need is one of the most rewarding things you can do,” Panthofer said. “I’ve learned that you can always turn to God regardless of whichever cir-cumstance you may be in.”Panthofer is the first student from St. Ann Par-ish to receive the scholar-ship, stating that she was both excited and honored to have won this for the church.“I received a lot of con-gratulatory feedback from the community and church after having one,” she said. “Many unfamiliar faces made a point of saying something about it to me after mass.”Panthofer plans on con-tinuing to give back as she goes into the field of pedi-atrics in college after being inspired by the children she met on mission trips. She also plans to use those skills in the Peace Corps afterwards.“I will carry this honor with me forever,” Panthofer said. “My faith journey has impacted my outlook on life as well as my willing-ness to give of myself and help those in need.”
