Whitney Hoover(11th grade), nominated by Ms. Burggren

Whitney Hoover, SOTM

“Whitney is hard-working, asks good questions, and participates in class activities. Above all of that, she always has a polite and positive attitude. When she is met with a challenge, she doesn't get discouraged, but instead asks for help and continues to work through it. It is a privilege to have a student like Whitney in class.”

Austin Skinner(12th grade), nominated by Mr. Champion

Austin Skinner, SOTM

“Austin is a very mature and very competent student. He is low key and doesn't put himself out there in any negative way. When he has a task to do he does what needs to be done. As a PEER, his host teacher, Mr. Urbanawiz, said, ‘Austin has been great for his student. He gives his student space when he needs it and he keeps his student on task as he needs it.’ Mr. Urbaniwiz also said, ‘Austin has set the bar high for PEERS and he would like to have more like him in the future.’”
