District Judge Carolyn S. Bengel honored 48 Highlands Middle School students with the Optimist Club's Everyday Hero Award on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.
Usually intended for 5th graders, the award was given to students in grades 5-7 this year because it was suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. Selected by their peers, Everyday Heroes should be respectful, accountable, motivated, safe, responsible, helpful and encouraging. In addition, the hero is not a bully, is a good citizen, has good manners, gets along with everyone, is on time for school and is quiet in the halls.
The Optimist Club has sponsored this annual program for many years, and club members ensure that this peer-based award remains one of their priorities.
Congratulations to our Everyday Heroes!
