Homer Flex Phoenix award winners announced

Jonny Bice-Dee and Daylynn Yenny, both juniors, are the recipients of the Flex Phoenix Award for this month.

This award is given monthly to the student or students who represent the Homer Flex values of respect, ownership, and productivity, according to a release from the school.

“Jonny was nominated for this award for his motivation and hard work,” the release states. “He is a natural leader, both within the Flex community and the Homer community as a whole.”

“Jonny is inquisitive and is often doing independent research to supplement what he is learning in class. Jonny is a caring and kind individual who is always looking for ways to make the world a better place. He has the ability to have positive, inclusive interactions with people of all ages, and works hard to make Flex an open and supportive place for everyone. The staff and students really appreciate how he goes above and beyond in culinary to make delicious treats for the school.”

“Daylynn was nominated for this award for consistently demonstrating excellence through good attendance, thoroughness in her schoolwork, and high engagement in the classroom communities,” the release continues. “Although quiet and unassuming, Daylynn is an accomplished and bright student.”

“Daylynn has a strong sense of self, and is able to model positive work ethic and habits to other students. She has a wonderful sense of timing and humor that is rare amongst her peers. Daylynn has grown by leaps and bounds as a musician, stands dedicated to her work, and is always ready for the next challenge. She has been a wonderful addition to the Flex family, joining our community and making friends with ease.”
