Griffan was nominated for the “Great Kids Award” by several of his teachers; here is was they had to say about him: Griffan is one of the most gracious, sincere, and thoughtful students. Besides being well-mannered every day, he always does his work to the best of his ability. I have never seen him slack off. He is also well-liked by by his peers because he is a kind friend.

Tiffany was nominated for the “Great Kids Award” by several of her teachers; here is was they had to say about her: Tiffany is a great girl who is always positive and enthusiastic about life. She was always prepared in my CTE Intro class and shared comments in class. I especially appreciated her help during the sewing unit. She would just jump right in and help without me even asking. I know she helped one student before even completing her own apron. Tiffany is also a member of my FCCLA Club.
