Each month, this recognition is bestowed upon students who exhibit scholastic achievement, leadership, honesty, community service, teamwork, and empathy, among other notable characteristics.
Sisters Anna and Caroline Rose, 8th grade students at Pamlico County Middle School, were nominated by the 8th grade team for this award based on their strong work ethic, intrinsic motivation, and respectful nature. Both young ladies are excellent students who strive for excellence each day, in each class. Beyond their academic successes, they are members of the Pamlico County Middle School band and the Hurricanes Pride Marching Band at PCHS. They are also members of the PCMS Beta Club as well as the PCMS Battle of the Books team. Outside of school, the girls attend Reelsboro United Methodist Church where they are active members of the church youth group. Anna and Caroline are true assets to the Pamlico County School System and it is our pleasure to nominate them for Rotary Students of the Month.
Health Science Education Teacher Lynn Hardison had the following to say about Annie Anderson. “Since the beginning of my medical leave, Annie has stepped in and gone above the call of duty or expectations to help. She has been instrumental in organizing the chapter officers and the new members to keep chapter activities on schedule and to help PCHS HOSA meet International deadlines. Annie has demonstrated amazing leadership skills and dedication to HOSA, with little direction from me. It has been a proud teacher moment to see Annie flourish in her leadership capacity. Honestly, I would be lost without her and the other officers during my absence.”
Students who are nominated for this award receive a certificate and a Rotary coin which states the Rotary Four-Way Test: “Of the things we think, say or do: 1) Is it the TRUTH?, 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?, 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?, and 4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?” To further commemorate this honor, the Rotary Club has placed a plaque in both schools which displays the name of each recipient of this prestigious award.
