Your State Representatives

State Representative Ashley T.

“I don’t mind going against the norm. I do not want to listen to rumors & gossip. I refuse to spread them…That is bullying and I do not want to be a part of it.”

-Ashley

Why Ashley T. was Nominated:

Ashley is a member of the student bully prevention team. This year she shared her message of her experience with being bullied to the entire middle school and even reflected on moments when she herself did not always do the right thing at the right time. Ashley was brave enough to challenge the school to stand up for what is right and help everyone respect others. She is a student who is strong enough to overcome, self-reflect, and inspire others.

State Representative Brett T.

Brett - Virginia Student Rep Profile Image

“I choose to Be Strong by supporting my teammates on and off the field.”

-Brett

Why Brett T. was Nominated:

Brett came into Hickory as a new student this year and struggled to find a group with whom he could identify. He also struggled with home sickness and has experienced separation anxiety from friends and family. Brett’s moral compass is pointed in the right direction, and he has since established himself into positions that would allow We Dine Together to become well-received and well-spread.

Why Abigail S. was Nominated:

Abby is a positive individual who is always willing to help others and make them feel included. She displays great leadership in group activities and is kind and encouraging. Abby is an amazing student who I would highly recommend as an ambassador.
