Most Dedicated CLUB MEMBER
Most Dedicated Club Member Drama Club
To select 1 student out of 60 members of the Drama Club was no easy task, but neither is standing out amongst that many peers. Our selected recipient has done just that. She has stepped up and gone above and beyond her assignment since the first day of rehearsals. We are amazed by her selfless creative dedication to the club, her responsible and mature attitude and her exemplary organization. Pl_at_y would not have been possible without you. As if being Assistant Director was not a large enough task, you insisted on helping coordinate dances, work the lights, build scenery, and create props - you truly were involved in every aspect of the production. Thank you so much for all you did this year, Congratulations!

Ms. Hammell
Outstanding Performance in Art
It's hard to stand out in a group of talented students, but this year's recipient truly out-did herself. Beyond being an extraordinarily talented artist, this student regularly went above and beyond what was required. She showed constant attentiveness to those around her who required help, stayed after school to ensure her work was completed to perfection, and assisted in a variety of projects beyond the classroom painting faces at the Halloween dance, painting a mural for Lead Seed, and countless hours designing sets for Drama. She exceeds expectations, and impresses me every day. It started as a joke- but really, you are a "favorite" for me! Congratulations!

"Thank you for lending a paw and your "Wicked" talents to the VMMS chorus. Just remember "Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice. You'll make it now" because "actions speak louder than words."

This student is truly ahead of his time.

She plays with integrity and is a model athlete in her attitude and behavior on and off the court. No matter what the outcome of a game may be, she holds her head high and is respectful both in victory and defeat. I am lucky to have had the privilege of coaching her. She has been a dedicated member of the basketball team for 3 years, while maintaining exemplary grades, and incredible classroom conduct. Shes certainly a most worthy recipient of this distinguished award. Congratulations!
Alexis McKelvey
The Christie Pearce-Rampone Sportsmanship Award
When I first met this year's recipient in sixth grade he was a very raw wrestler/athlete...he certainly wasn't the best athlete on the mat or the track....but there was something about him, a fire to be the best. By the time seventh grade rolled around he had worked himself into a solid wrestler and athlete. His work ethic and the way he goes about his business on a daily basis is way beyond his years. This work ethic also translates not only into his athletics, but into his schoolwork, family and social life. His father refers to him as his "right hand man" and I can see why. Finally, in his eighth grade year a truly special athlete had emerged.  An athlete with impeccable manners a smile that is contagious and a true sportsman. This athlete was named team captain of both track and wrestling and was like  having an assistant coach. He would mentor and help any teammate that needed it as his time was their time. It isn't that often that you meet an athlete that puts in all the hard work, is coachable,  and deserves all of the success that comes his way....but he deserves all of the accolades he receives.  It has been my privilege to coach him and the program will miss him when he is gone.
