John Chosen for the 2010 Great Kid Award

We attended an award program tonight where John was awarded the Great Kid Award.  Only one girl and one boy from each junior high is chosen.  The program was held at the SCERA Center for the Arts.  This award is designed to honor students who strive for excellence.  Such children demonstrate respect for themselves, authority, and other students.  They represent the values embraced by their schools, and their families.  The award is intended to be given to the young man or woman who has exemplified an attitude of service to and support of their fellow students and a deep respect for themselves and their teachers.  They are someone who everyone sees as a great person and who goes out of their way to contribute to the success of others.  They are held in high esteem by their classmates and teachers and are seen as someone who is a friend with great personal integrity.
