 This program is designed so that any student regardless of academic ability can receive the award.  Students will be selected that possess qualities ranging from academic success, leadership, and positive citizenship within the school and community.  This program will be facilitated by the LPD School Resource Officer, along with the Principal from each school.

Students will be nominated by the school faculty and administration.  The winning student will be presented with a certificate recognizing their accomplishments.  Through the gracious support of Goodrich Quality Theaters, each student will also be provided with a pair of free movie passes. 

The first presentation of this award will take place Friday January 25th at 1:30pm.  The presentation will take place at Vinton Elementary.
