For third quarter, Jayla Ousley was awarded the SJV Medal of Honor. This quarter’s virtue was commitment. Commitment is being and staying dedicated to a cause. Jayla was nominated by her fellow classmates for showing her commitment to her education and her school. Jayla is a very hardworking student that takes the lead in a group to make sure the assignment is completed. She goes the extra mile to make sure that everyone in the group understands the information. Jayla was also nominated for all of the extra time she gives to the school through extra curricular activities, especially Student Government. Congratulations Jayla!
The Medal of Honor is a character education program utilized by our middle school Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Casey Raybourne. Using this program, Mrs. Raybourne studies actual Medal of Honor recipients with her students to discuss various attributes and virtues of someone who has been recognized with this important distinction.
