Patriot of Valor: Brittney Urbanek

May 07, 2018

Our fourth and final Patriot of Valor was recognized at Academic Awards Night on Thursday, May 10th. Sophomore, Brittney Urbanek was recognized for this award. The Patriot of Valor recognizes students for their academic performance, character, behavior, and attendance. Teachers look at academic performance by examining a student’s grades, class participation, quality completion of work, and admirable academic performance or significant academic improvement over time. Character is reflected through one’s attitude, responsibility, trustworthiness, and leadership. Honesty and integrity, and a sense of right and wrong also reflect one’s character. A student’s behavior can include their school spirit, respect towards peers and authority, being well-mannered, and demonstrating strong effort and work ethic. Another factor is if the student maintains good attendance, takes the initiative to communicate with teachers for school absences, and is prompt to class and respectful of the teacher’s time.

Brittney’s nominations stated: 

“Brittney is worthy of the Patriot of Valor recognition due to her leadership and tremendous hard work in the classroom. Brittney maintains high grades in her classes with an attention to detail. Brittney helps her classmates by explaining the lessons outside of class time.” 

“Brittney played a key role on the volleyball team this fall and excels on the dance team. She does the little things that may seem to go unnoticed, but truly are noticed.”

Congratulations Brittney on becoming the newest Patriot of Valor!
