Your State Representatives

State Representative Josiah J.

“I choose to be strong in school by being around my friends, being myself and standing up for people when they don’t get treated right.”

-Josiah

Why Josiah J. was Nominated:

I would like to nominate Josiah. Josiah is an outstanding child and his tireless efforts in addressing and raising awareness about the issues of bullying in his community goes above and beyond. Josiah is one of those students who is a natural leader and shines amongst his peers. He is an intelligent, charismatic, hard-working young boy with a strong desire to consistently see, do and want more for himself and those around him.

State Representative Sam P.

“Being true to myself means that I help other people bring out their personalities since I really enjoy getting to know other people. I can be kind of shy, but once you get to know me, I’m crazy fun.”

-Sam

Why Sam was Nominated:

I nominate Sam. She floats seamlessly between social groups and both doesn’t contribute to mindless gossip and deflects it. She is great in arguments and is always able to “play the devil’s advocate” and serves as a true empathetic member of her class.

State Representative Myles M.

“I choose to be kind in my community and in my school because I think that everybody should have a friend that can brighten their day.”

-Myles

Why Myles was Nominated:

Myles and his classmates have led the way to encourage one another to befriend younger students and to be positive role models for their classmates. After a recent school shooting in a neighboring county, many students asked what they could do to be a positive influence in the lives of others. Myles’ homeroom class, in particular, led the way in befriending younger students. They began having lunch with several sixth graders once a week. Soon Myles and his classmates were making contacts with younger students outside of the cafeteria – offering academic and social advice, giving high fives in the hallway, connecting on social media.
