Homer Flex Phoenix award winners

Homer Flex School has announced the most recent winners of the Flex Phoenix Award. The award is given to the student who best represents the school’s values of respect, ownership, and productivity each month, according to school counselor Ingrid Harrald.

“Junior Mac Mayer was nominated for this award for her natural leadership, and creativity,” Harrald wrote in an email. “She is friendly, engaging, and honest. She is a natural leader at our school, often taking lead in extra projects and activities. She is creative, and allows that creativity show in all aspects of her life — from her clothing style, to her school projects, to her dedication to music. She is a talented singer and has challenged herself to be enrolled at Homer High School for both Swing Choir and Concert Choir. She is a particularly great communicator and self-advocate, which makes her an excellent student, friend, and community member.”

“Graduating Junior Katlin Cudaback receives this award for being goal oriented, organized, and resourceful,” Harrald continued. “She perseveres, even when given tough assignments, and once she decides she wants something there is no stopping her, including graduating a year early. Katlin is an exceptionally talented artist, both graphically and in fiber art, and she demonstrates her creativity regularly while constantly challenging herself. Katlin is conscientious and kind to others, and is willing to work with anyone. Katlin provides a great example to her peers and embodies many of Flex’s core values.”

“Graduating Senior Autumn Carlson was selected for much more than being a stellar student,” Harrald wrote. “She goes above and beyond to support her peers, seize opportunities, take care of herself, and demonstrate leadership in the Flex, KPBSD, and Homer communities. Autumn eagerly takes on challenges, whether that be basketball, summer field positions, college classes, or facing down her competitors on the dodgeball court. She has a strong sense of self and is a great example of leadership for others. Autumn is a caring and thoughtful friend, peer, and student. She demonstrates patience, leadership, and tolerance to all around her. With her graduation, Autumn leaves some very large shoes to fill.”
