Act of Kindness Award

September 2022

You are walking down a school hallway and see a volunteer struggling to hang something on a bulletin board, what do you do? George F. Baker 11th grader Tyler Grant stopped and helped. That random act earned him the first 'Act of Kindness Award' for the 2022-2023 school year. Principal Roy Reese started the award at the High School last year as a way to encourage students to #bekind and look out for one another. Great job Tyler!
