2024 Recipients

Grace Baden

Lefler Middle School
8th Grade
Nominated By: Principal Allison Meister

Grace has been an inspiration to me throughout her three years at Lefler. She started 6th grade very shy and unsure of herself and now as an 8th grader she is confident, a quiet leader, and involved in both our Lefler community and the Lincoln community. She is kind to everyone and has built strong relationships with other students and staff members because of her sweet personality, compassion for others, and fantastic sense of humor. Grace has served as a member of the Lefler Student Council during 8th grade and has volunteered with projects like our Penny Wars and selling Candy Cane grams to help build community at school as well as raise money for Lincoln community programs. Grace has also been an active volunteer at the Cat House in Lincoln, giving of her time there every Saturday for the past three years. Grace has been an exceptional student during her time at Lefler, always modeling our school-wide expectations to show Respect, take Ownership, be Accepting, and Be Responsible, and I know that she will go on to ROAR as a Lincoln High Link.
