Jeremiah Rumsey and Kianna Heller were the April Youth Rotars for the Rotary Club of Black River Falls.
Both are seniors at the Black River Falls High School. Youth Rotars are selected by their school and Rotary as
representatives of “good citizens” in both their school and their community. Youth Rotars spend one month
attending the Rotary Club’s meetings and give reports on school events. At their last meeting, they are
presented with the Black River Falls Rotary Club’s flag. The Youth Rotar Program runs from September
through May with two representatives each month, except the month of December.
Jeremiah is the son of Brad and Kathleen Rumsey. He has one sister. Jeremiah is a member of the Tiger
Investment Club, FCCLA, FBLA, Band, the Musical and he plays golf and soccer. He currently works as a
lifeguard and student technician. Outside of school and work he enjoys golfing and spending time with family
and friends. Jeremiah plans on attending UW Eau Claire as an Economics major and pursue a degree in Pre
Law. When asked about his time as a Youth Rotar, Jeremiah said, “I learned that just because you are
extremely busy, it doesn’t mean you can’t afford some time to give back to the community.”
Kianna is the daughter of Jeff Millis and Stephanie Heller. She has one sister, three dogs, two horses and a
cat. In school, Kianna is involved in Volleyball, Dance Team, GM97, Student Senate, Teens Against Tobacco
Use, Teens Against Bullying Others, FCCLA, Pep Club, National Honor Society, Interact and Figure Skating.
She recently finished working as a coach for the Black River Falls Figure Skating Club. In her free time she
enjoys riding her horses and competing in local shows, being active and working out, cooking, reading and
listening to music. After graduation, Kianna plans on attending UW-Stevens Point to major in Dietetics and
minor in Business Administration and Communications. She would like to become a Registered Dietitian at a
hospital and eventually start her own business. When asked about her time as a Youth Rotar, Kianna said,
“Attending the weekly meetings has taught me a lot about hard work and dedication. It has been great meeting
local business owners and leaders and hearing about how they got started and what their future plans are. It
has been great learning about our community and the people behind it.”
