Patriot of Valor Recipients

September 29, 2019


Clarkson Public Schools is pleased to announce the recipients of the Patriot of Valor award for the month of September. This award recognizes students for their academic performance, character, behavior, and attendance. Teachers nominate students that demonstrate these qualities each month and then selections are made during staff meetings.  Students are chosen from elementary, middle and high school. 

Seventh grade student Emma Gall was nominated in the junior high by Mrs. Tami Sayers.  “Emma has been a respectful classmate and student who works well with others. She participates in class and asks questions when she has them. Emma will talk to anyone and always has a smile on her face!”

Junior Lyrick Vance was nominated by Mrs. Lynn Morfeld. “In recognition for moving out of your comfort zone! Your confidence has grown tremendously in the past three years from a girl who would shyly whisper responses to a young woman who has the courage to interview people and take pictures at games. You continue to be trustworthy, respectful, and a curious student. Thanks for being YOU!”

Sophomore Noah Holoubek was nominated by Mrs. Vicky Miller “for always being an eager learner. Noah notices little details and seeks to understand patterns to know why things are the way they are. He is genuinely curious about so many topics and pushes himself to raise his own bar. He is also willing to share his technology talents with others in the classroom. He will be a lifelong learner!”

Noah received a second nomination from Mrs. Emily Wietfeld, “Noah uses his time wisely, is unafraid to ask questions, is trustworthy, has a passion for knowledge, creates working helpful relationships with teachers and peers, is very well disciplined, and is technologically savvy.”

For the elementary students, a group of three were awarded for cleaning up Clarkson over Labor Day weekend.  The girls that helped keep our community clean were Kanon Clarkson (3rd grade), Cierra Novotny (3rd grade), and Kyla Clarkson (5th grade).  Mrs. Abby Gall recognizes and appreciates their efforts.

Sixth grade student Tucker Matthies was the recipient at the middle school level because of his efforts in all classrooms.  Mr. Andrew Faltys said, “Tucker has gone beyond what is expected in the classroom this school year. He has stuck his neck out to answer questions in class, even if he wasn’t 100% sure.  He’s taking chances and I appreciate it!”

Clarkson Public Schools congratulates these seven students and looks forward to showcasing more students in October.
