Danbury Local School District is excited to announce its 2018-19 honorees for the Danbury Core Value of Leadership. The honorees were honored recently in a ceremony at the Danbury High School Gymnasium.
They recipients were Gabrielle Norman (3rd Grade), Madyson Ritz (8th Grade), Janessa Shortridge (12th Grade), Richard Heller (Danbury Staff), and Molly Rosiar (Danbury Community Member).
The Danbury students and staff have collectively defined a leader as: “Someone who is a passionate and professional leader and role model. Approachable and listens. Encourages/models positive and professional behaviors. Active positive participation. Doing what is right, even when it’s not popular. Actively encouraging and modeling positive behaviors.”
The honorees were nominated by the students and staff of Danbury Schools. These five individuals stood out as representatives of our Core Value of Leadership, based on the 70 nominations that were submitted. “The quality and caliber of students, staff, and community members who were nominated made the decision process incredibly difficult, but the five people we selected really are shining examples of Leadership at Danbury,” wrote school officials.
“Danbury Local Schools is passionate about delivering more than just an education. We believe developing our next generation of leaders begins with the core values that we have collectively defined as a district.”
Throughout the 2018-19 school year, Danbury Local Schools will focus on each value and honor individuals from its school and community who best represent each one.
