Eighth grader, Keiarra Tutt, loves spending time with her family, and enjoys playing basketball and softball at PCMS. Mrs. Wendi Durci, 8th grade English Language Arts/Social Studies teacher had this to say about Keiarra. “She is an excellent student who is always on task, is helpful to classmates and teachers, and is always focused on her work. She excels inside the classroom, and out. She is polite, and well-liked by her classmates.” When Keiarra graduates from high school, she plans to attend Elon University and pursue studies in physical therapy or in the medical field.

Students are selected for the award based on the Rotary Four-Way Test, which has been used around the world since 1943. It states, “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.
