Powder Springs Mayor Honors Students for Respect

Thirty-nine from Tapp Middle were nominated by their teachers for showing the character trait of the quarter.

Thirty-nine Tapp Middle students were recently honored for showing respect as part of the school’s program that awards those who display a certain trait. 

At Monday night’s City Council meeting, some of those students were recognized by Mayor Pat Vaughn, who recently attended a Chick-fil-A-sponsored breakfast with them.

“Each teacher recommended a student from her class that she felt had best represented respect,” the mayor said. “I want you to know how proud I am of these students.”

All the character traits play off the acronym PRIDE—Performance, Respect, Integrity, Determination, Excellence. Hence, the program is called Students of Pride. 

It was put together by Tapp’s teachers and Principal Jeanne Walker over the summer, and, since there are already recognitions for grades, is meant to award students for other qualities—“by being good students, by being good citizens, by being model citizens both in and out of the school,” Walker said.

“Because that’s what we want to be as a school and how we want to be seen throughout the community,” she said.
