Leo’s Justin Hueber Wins Fred A. Keesling Mental Attitude Award
Senior Justin Hueber of Leo High School is the 2005 recipient of the Fred A. Keesling Mental Attitude Award presented following Wednesday’s final round of the 69th annual IHSAA Boys Golf Championship at The Legends of Indiana Golf Course in Franklin. Hueber finished second individually in the field of 135 golfers with a 69-77-146 total, helping coach Paul Newberg’s Lions tie for fourth in their first-ever team appearance at the IHSAA Finals.

He tied the school record with a 69 this season, setting the school mark for season scoring average. He is a four-time all-conference performer who was medalist at the 2005 Allen County Athletic Conference (ACAC) Tournament. The versatile Hueber also competed in basketball and track at Leo, earning MVP honors at the ACAC Basketball Tournament.
In the classroom, Hueber graduated 25th in his senior class with an Academic Honors diploma. The National Honor Society student is active in the school’s Students Sharing Hearts Club and as a peer tutor.
“Justin gives of himself to help others,” says Leo principal Mark Daniel. “Numerous times I’ve seen him extend a helping hand to those who need a kind word or assistance. He is an outstanding student and he understands and maintains a genuine sensitivity and caring for others.”
In the community, he is a Coffee House volunteer who has gone on several mission trips for his church.
Hueber will attend the University of Indianapolis as a pre-med major on an academic and athletic scholarship.
