Rex Wilson

Pershing Elementary 
5th Grade
Nominated By: Principal Jamie Cook

Rex Wilson has shown strong leadership skills in all areas of the school. Rex is a kind friend to have and is often found laughing and smiling with his peers. Whether it is supporting his fellow peers in a game of soccer or helping his peers reach academic success, he is always willing to lend a hand. We have seen Rex grow in his leadership abilities as he encourages others to meet their full potential. An example of Rex's character is a time when a fellow 5th grader was having trouble collecting his thoughts during an academic review game, this was causing some frustration. Without any prompting, Rex took the time to work with the student and help him piece together what the student was trying to get across; allowing the student to grow in confidence. No matter who it is or what might be at stake, Rex Wilson proves time and time again he is a compassionate, kind, and resilient leader.
