2024 Recipients

Violet McCollough

Beattie Elementary 
5th Grade
Nominated By: Principal Julie Lee

Violet is the epitome of what it means to be a kind, caring, respectful, and hard-working student. She is an absolute pleasure to teach due to her craving to learn, regardless of the subject or topic. More importantly, her character illuminates the room everyday with joy. Her peers know how approachable and considerate she is, and her teachers greatly appreciate how enthusiastic and focused she is. Violet is an asset to the Beattie Leadership Team because of these wonderful qualities, in addition to her classroom and school as a whole. 

Violet is an incredible member of the Beattie community. She is a friend to absolutely everyone. She does not discriminate others for their differences, instead she embraces these differences and makes them strengths. She always comes to school with a smile on her face and is ready to learn. Her enthusiasm for learning brings other students "up," her joy and passion is contagious. She is definitely an inspiration to her peers and to me as well.
