Homer Flex School announces Phoenix award winners

With daily learning at local schools taking a different and more distant route, Homer Flex School is catching up on its announcements with the presentation of three Flex Phoenix Award winners for the past two months.

This award is given monthly to the student who represent the Homer Flex values of respect, ownership, and productivity, wrote Ingrid Harrald, school counselor. The winners are: freshman Teagen Fowler, senior Sierra Clark and junior Gabe Grimes.

“Freshman Teagen Fowler was nominated for this award for working hard every day to understand new material and being an active participant in class,” Harrald wrote. “Teagen advocates for herself and asks good, relevant questions. She is an enthusiastic, creative soul and is motivated to better herself. Teagen is actively involved in many school activities outside of academics. She is open to new experiences, and her outgoing nature makes her a leader in her class.”

“Senior Sierra Clark receives this award for being a motivated and dedicated student,” Harrald wrote. “She utilizes her time wisely in class, and is bright, organized, determined, and hard working. Through her example, Sierra has led her peers, and shown us all how to balance work, family, and both high school and college classes. She is a natural leader with a clear sense of who she is and what her core values are. These will make her successful in whatever she chooses to do.”

“Junior Gabe Grimes was selected because of his positive attitude and his ability to set a good example for his peers,” Harrald wrote. “He is a thoughtful and considerate friend. Gabe has a very accurate perception of his strengths and areas for growth and uses that to produce quality work. Gabe is an earnest and open communicator, and a leader in school circle discussions. He volunteers to take on extra tasks, including Yearbook Club and Sources of Strength. He is a valued member of the Flex community.”
