The Superintendent’s Student of the Month is Sydney Grant, a Pulaski Elementary School Fifthgrader. Sydney was chosen for her myriad of accomplishments and community involvement.
Among her accomplishments, Sydney has achieved high honor roll throughout her academic career, placed 1st in Pulaski’s 2008-09 Science Fair, and runner up at the school level of the 2008-09 Spelling Bee. Sydney has also attained the school’s title of Top Reader for the past two years.
Sydney shines in the community as a member of the 4-H Club, Girl Scouts, the Savannah Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, and the ESP Kids Savings Club. Sydney even finds time to play the clarinet in the school band.
Her teacher Patricia Nelms states, “I must admit that I am amazed at her level of maturity. The wealth of knowledge she possesses is far above that of her peers. Sydney is a very humble young lady; an exceptionally bright child whose personality has blossomed over the past years.” When asked what motivates her to strive for academic success, Sydney quickly responds, “I keep trying to move forward by involvement in school, home, and the community. I hope to someday use my passion for animals by becoming a veterinarian.”
The Superintendent’s Student of the Month program recognizes individual students at the monthly board meetings who have excelled in the area of academics, leadership, and community service.
Sydney was recognized by Dr. Lockamy and presented with an award plaque and $100 savings bond at the regular board meeting on Wednesday, February 3.
