Each month, this recognition is bestowed upon students who exhibit scholastic achievement, leadership, honesty, community service, teamwork, and empathy, among other notable characteristics.
A beautiful smile, an air of confidence, and friendly “hellos” to everyone she encounters is what you’ll see when you meet Omeliah. This seventh-grader is not only awesome on the outside, but she also possesses qualities of a model student. Omeliah has set high academic & extracurricular goals for herself. As a student she is diligent in her assignments, focused, listens attentively, and helps others. All of her teachers feel fortunate to have her in their classroom. Her extracurricular activity focuses on participating in the PCMS Media News production. This allows her opportunity for growth as a leader, perfection in public speaking and interaction with her peers & the community. We are so pleased to recognize Omeliah Boyd as Pamlico County Middle School’s Rotary Student of the Month.
As for Mariah, Arts Teacher/Coordinator Karen Spruill said this about her, “She is a freshman this year and I have her in a Beginning Art class. Mariah has excellent grades and always works hard in all of her classes, not just Art. I had her at PCMS last year and at PCHS she continues to be a very polite, hardworking, and kind young lady. She works quietly, but effectively, and is well liked by her peers.”
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.
