9-12th Grade Winner: Seth Robinson:  Nominated By Ms. Armstong & Mr. Kennedy

Ms. Armstrong’s Comments:

Seth has been great about getting his homework turned in during class and will volunteer to present right away or share his ideas.  He has also participated in all our FFA practices, contests, and activities this fall.  Seth has shown up on time and has been willing to try new contests and does anything I ask of him.  When it comes to directions, he is sure to ask if something is unclear.  Seth has turned the page this year that I have seen.  He knows how to have fun in class but also knows when it is time to get serious to get things done.  He follows all of our classroom rules and contest rules.  He has shown willingness to try new things and not be afraid to fail.  I am excited to see how he grows in class and with our chapter. 

Mr. Kennedy’s Comments:

Seth has taken a great interest in welding.  He has been working hard in class.  Seth even bought his own welding helmet.  He is always the first one to be ready to weld.  He is always willing to help clean-up and has been a great contributor to this class.   Seth has been a joy to have in class and works hard. 

6-8th Grade Winner Kohl Rutherford:  Nominated By Mrs. Bauer

Kohl is punctual, prepared, and always inquiring about the subject at hand. He always brings a positive, ready-to-learn attitude to class every day. He is asking questions when he doesn't understand and questioning what we discuss to learn more. He is always on time with assignments and uses his time wisely when given.  He has always been very polite and respectful towards me and is making great choices to stay out of any negative situations. He chooses to use any free time in class wisely and efficiently. He is always willing to help out a classmate or even me by either assisting with books, handing out papers, helping a student carry material from class to class or reminding them that they have forgotten something. Overall, I have seen Kohl mature and step up within the classroom. He is a great example of how you are to properly conduct yourself within the classroom and outside the classroom. I am very pleased with what I see and hope it continues for the future.

PK-5th Grade Winner: Klaire McCorkle: Nominated by Mrs. Shirley & Mr. Spangler

Mrs. Shirley’s Comments

Klaire always gets her work done on time. She does her best to accomplish any task that she sets her mind too. Klaire always uses her manners when working with others. She also is very respectful to adults that she encounters.  Klaire is very aware of things that may not be the safest to do and makes sure that others also know if there may be a danger. She also is very good at not putting herself into unwanted situations.  Klaire is very helpful with her peers. She is awesome at giving help if I am busy with another student. She is always there to help anyone who needs it. Klaire is eager to learn and is curious about things. She has a wonderful sense of humor and is able to get a smile or a laugh out of the class at the appropriate times.

Mr. Spangler’s Comments:

She always comes in and sits on the black line and is ready to begin.  Klaire helps others when needed.  Klaire follows the instructions given each day.  Klaire is always asking if she can help.  She understands what we are doing and tries to help others that need help completing the task or objective for the day.
