36 TVMS students receive Peacekeeper Award
36 Tippecanoe Valley Middle School students are recipients of the Peacekeeper Award presented during the school’s annual awards day program on May 23.
The Peacekeeper Award, sponsored annually by the Akron Community Relations Task Force, is presented to students who are not only “good citizens” in the general sense, but individuals who also clearly demonstrate one or more of the following:
- A friendly, positive attitude toward everyone – especially toward others of a different cultural, ethnic, racial, and/or socio-economic background.
- Regular, cooperative working and social relationships with those of differing backgrounds – in small group work, in student organizations, and/or on teams.
- A sense of advocacy for those in need – stands up for and tries to help those who are victims of bullying, who are often “left out” of activities and social situations, and/or who are “at-risk” for some reason.
Each first year recipient of the Peacekeeper Award was presented with an engraved key ring and a certificate. Second year recipients were presented a peace charm and a certificate.
