Aubrey Tansey Trafalgar Middle- 6th Grade

Aubrey displayed integrity when reporting an incident that occurred at school with another child.  She was approached by another student who asked her to vape during recess.  She immediately said no and reported the incident to a school official.

Delaney McGrath Diplomat Middle- 7th

Kasey Munera Diplomat Middle – 7th 

Delaney and Kasey became aware that another student brought alcohol to school.  Their immediate concern for their classmates prompted them to report the incident to an administrator.


Hannah Johnson Christa McAuliffe-5th Grade

Noah Johnson Christa McAuliffe – 3rd Grade

Hannah thought she spotted smoke in front of a vacant house at her bus stop.  Both Hannah and her brother rushed over.  Upon closer inspection, they saw a smoldering cigarette in the mulch.  They used their water bottles to extinguish the smoke and stomped on the ashes to make sure the fire was out.  Their quick action prevented a fire from overtaking the yard as the mulch and grass were extremely dry.

Erin Ramey Cape Coral High School - 11th Grade

Erin dedicated her summer to volunteering in a Pre-K ESE Program at a local elementary school.  Erin demonstrated patience and compassion in working with students with special needs.
