He supports and encourages his fellow classmates and his teachers can always count on him to have a positive attitude.


    10th - Lindsey Wallace


    Lindsey took it upon herself to assist the student across from her who was having difficulties navigating Google Classroom.  Now, I regularly see them engaging with each other offering advice, positive criticism, ideas, and encouragement on each other's work.  This is exactly the type of relationship building that not only builds success, but creates true bonds of friendship.
