Harmon High. The following are excerpts from their nominations:

Bellah Frazee

“Bellah has shown so much growth this year. She is becoming Kindergarten ready and it shows every day in what she accomplishes. Bellah has been an amazing role model for all of her class. She helps out others when they are struggling and is always teaching others something on a daily basis.”
-Jessica Clippinger, Pre-K teacher

Brooklyn Simpson

“Brooklyn is such an amazing student to have in class. She is one of the hardest workers I have ever had in class. She never gives up, which is such a great quality to have. Brooklyn is well-known and loved by all staff members. She is an amazing student and overall person.”
-Amanda Dirks, teacher

Michelle Aguilera-Enriquez

“Michelle has a strong work ethic, stands up for others in any situation, is a leader during collaborative tasks and is naturally inquisitive. She is willing and able to help students of any background. Michelle stands out on our team in many ways and is very deserving of this honor.”
 -Michael Borders, teacher

Zachary Garner, Alicia Granados-Rodriguez and Genesis Garcia-Flores

“This past weekend these three amazing students gave a powerful spoken word presentation at the March for Our Lives Walk. They not only represented themselves, their families and their school extremely well, they also did an amazing job of showing off their voice and advocating for what they need. I could go on and on about how great these students are and include many other great things that they have done, but I am going to let their leadership that they showed at the march speak for itself.”
-Geoff Markos, principal
