State Representative Alyssa P.

“I think if I could touch one life, that’s a job well done.”

-Alyssa

Why Alyssa was Nominated:

Alyssa is an amazing young woman. She strives to make a difference for others and make everyone feel included. She is an active participant in the Miss Teen Oklahoma pageant circle where she advocates for others to be the best versions of themselves they can. In a recent discussion about life, Alyssa shared with me the reason she is so passionate about helping others feel included. As a child, she suffered from a speech impediment. She told me she spent almost every day in elementary school sitting alone at the lunch table while others ridiculed her. As a result of this experience, she has decided to start a “We Dine Together” program at out school. The goal of this program is that everyone knows there is somewhere to go and with someone they can have lunch. She said, “No one should ever have to feel the way I did.” It is for these reasons that I believe Alyssa should be a Be Strong representative.

State Representative Megan N.

“I believe in love and caring for those around me.”

-Megan

Why Meagan was Nominated:

Megan is an 11th grader at Deer Creek High. She approached me earlier this month asking for a meeting to discuss the possibility of starting a We Dine Together chapter here at DCHS. We met earlier this week and she shared with me the video clip as well as the website and other material about the initiative. Megan went on to explain that she believes We Dine Together can be a tool to change the “clique-like” culture we have at DCHS and I whole-heartedly agree. Megan is a model student and has the biggest heart. She works with various school and community groups, all who have a mission of inclusion and care. As the principal, I would love to have the We Dine Together initiative started here and I know Megan is the perfect student to lead the way. She has shared with me her plan to designate other student leaders from other grade levels to be inclusive even at the leadership level. It is my honor to recommend Megan Neaves to be our leader for our We Dine Together club.
