Lincoln East Honors 9th Grade 2015 Shining Stars

What exactly is a Shining Star?
During the last nine weeks of the school year, staff members were invited to nominate for recognition ninth grade students who have consistently demonstrated these character traits:

    1. Responsibility
    2. Trustworthiness
    3. Respect
    4. Fairness
    5. Citizenship
    6. Caring

Each of these students has learned to:

    • Be a good person, someone to look up to and admire
    • Think right and do right -- knowing the difference between right and wrong and always do what is right
    • Set a good example for everyone
    • Make the world a better place

Students cannot campaign or compete for this recognition.  Good grades are not a guarantee of being selected.  Students are selected solely on the basis of what kind of person they are and how they interact with others.   Only 25 students in the ninth grade class of 459 have earned this recognition.  

The celebration was conducted on Wednesday Map 29, 2015 beginning at 3:15.  The recipients and their guests were greeted by Principal Susan Cassata with remarks following from Brenda Leggiardo, District Coordinator for Counselors and Pete Ferguson, LPS Federal Programs.  Lincoln East Ambassador Imani Wilson invited the "Stars" to join the Ambassadors as they demonstrate the qualifications for ambassadors.  Awards were presented to the recognized students. 

Following closing remarks all attendees were invited to join in refreshments.
