Ezzie Martin, Caylin Lindsay, and Amelia Slater
I would like to nominate Ezzie Martin, Caylin Lindsay, and Amelia Slater for the February Good Samaritans. These three girls worked together to start a fundraising campaign to help Pastor Voigt collect funds to go on a missions trip to India. The girls made posters and encouraged their fellow students to bring in money for Pastor Voigt all on their own. Way to Go, Girls!
"I would nominate Sam Ferrell. Last week when the secondary had a half day, Mr. DelCorvo and I were setting up tables and chairs for the elementary lunch. Sam was walking through the gym and offered to help without being asked. He helped us finish setting up for lunch. It was much appreciated."
"I'd like to nominate Grace Sullivan for a Good Samaritan. She always goes out of her way to make others feel included.I have watched her encourage others to get involved in class or activities that are done in class. She consistently draws others in, being a friend to all.Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus, Grace. Keep it up!"
"I appreciate Maddy's sweet, kind, helpful nature. She displays a Christ-like example in all of her interactions with both students and staff. I feel blessed to have her in my class."
"Harley Hatt has gone above and beyond repeatedly this year to open the door for me when my hands have been full. I have also seen him do this for others. Even if Harley is in the middle of doing something else, he will stop, and quickly help out when he is needed. It is evident that he is doing this NOT to be rewarded, but because he has a kind and loving servant's heart. He also exemplifies the character trait of being respectful. He always has a friendly greeting and smile for me. In addition, he is caring and asks me how I am doing. He is a blessing to me and to many others. I truly appreciate how thoughtful he is toward other people."

"I would like to nominate Rachel Spaulding for Good Samaritan for the month of October. She has a kind, caring heart and has shown Christ's love to others. When some of her classmates did not have money to buy cider and donuts, Rachel felt very sad. She went to her mother, and explained how badly she felt because her friends were unable to purchase cider and doughnuts. Rachel and her sweet mother provided the funds so her friends could also enjoy this special treat. In addition, Rachel has done an excellent job being a wonderful role model for her classmates by following the rules, and striving to always do what is right. She has done an excellent job helping one of our new students get adjusted, as well. Rachel does all of these good deeds quietly, and without drawing attention or fuss to herself. She also has a very positive attitude and an understanding heart. I greatly appreciate how Rachel shows the love of God to those around her."

"Jake is being selected as a Good Samaritan because he is seeking to support Simon and Chocreen who are in Uganda. If you recall, we are supporting these two young people to help them be able to pay for an education at a boarding school in their country. Before this, they were homeless and not able to attend school. He is collecting donations. In two days, he raised about $12 to put toward our school goal for them. He is encouraging those to whom he comes in contact to donate coins toward this effort. He is demonstrating a kind heart as he thinks about how to help those who need support.

"I'd like to nominate Ryleigh Rollins for Good Samaritan. She selflessly gave up her position during a volleyball game to allow another teammate to get some play time. She did it all without complaining and cheered her teammate on. I was so proud of both of them!"
