Once a month, students are selected by teachers to be recognized as ROCS (Respect Others, Community and Self) students. Students may be selected for this award by actively spreading a ROCS attitude. Teachers can nominate any of their students if they see them displaying ROCs conduct. Yorktown recognizes students with these qualities to show how our community at school is a respectable environment. This month, sophomore Lily Harp was chosen by Advanced Placement (AP) world history teacher, Diane Boudalis for this respectable honor.

 

“I nominated Lily because she went extremely far out of her way before break to get work done and manage classes. I thought that she stood out as a role model of how we want our students to be, which is responsible,” Boudalis said.

 

By showing initiative to get work done ahead of time and by staying on top of things, Harp portrays a responsible student. Aside from Harp staying up to date in classes, Boudalis praised her daily attitude in the classroom.

 

“In addition to the fact that on a regular basis she brings a really great attitude to class, she works really nicely with her peers and is always involved and interested, which is a good model for what a ROCS student should be,” Boudalis said.

 

ROCS students set an example for other students even when they do not even realize it. Harp was recognized this month for her overall hard work and the ethics that she uses at school. In this past month, Harp has gone above and beyond in this class. Even though she has not won this award before, she has definitely showed her respect for others, community and self throughout this whole year.

 

“I try to be nice and respectful to all the teachers and classmates to show ROCS. I would love to continue being a ROCS student because I think it was an honor to be chosen, and I think just sticking to the motto of respecting others, community, and self will keep it up,” Harp said.

 

Overall, Harp is a very hardworking and dedicated student that shows her Respect for Others, Community, and Self through her daily attitude in and outside the classroom.
