High School Students Honored With "STUDENTS ROCK AWARD"

Plainville High School students Lissa Little and Jacob Masco have been named recipients of the first semester "Students Rock Award" recognizing their outstanding contributions to Plainville High School.

In seeking a way to honor students who "do the right thing every day," the Plainville High School Mentoring Committee, comprised of high school faculty members and led by fellow faculty members Anna Norland and Maria Colangelo, created the Students Rock Award during the 2009-10 school year. According to the nomination guidelines created by the committee, students to be considered for the award must assume responsibility for their behavior, contribute to the school and community, and appreciate the benefits of a physically, emotionally and socially healthy lifestyle. "Jake and Lissa exemplify the typical Plainville High student - conscientious and kind. Young people, like Jake and Lissa, give us all hope for a bright future. It is a sincere pleasure to honor them with the Students Rock Award," said Colangelo.

Lissa Little, a junior, was nominated by Plainville High School faculty member Lena Pietri and Principal Steven LePage. Jacob Masco, a sophomore was nominated by high school faculty members Jennifer Jambard, TJ Riccardo, and Cindy Birdsall.
Little, Masco, and their families were honored on March 19 at a high school faculty meeting.

"Lissa and Jacob epitomize this award in that they demonstrate how best to leave others and places better for having known them. That is what makes Plainville High School a phenomenal place to teach and learn," said Norland. "I am honored and blessed to be a part of this community."

"This award is truly one of my favorite acknowledgments of positive student achievement. It is awarded to only four students per year who do the right things and who demonstrate positive character by showing care, respect and concern for others. We have many students who demonstrate these positive qualities, but Jacob and Lissa are certainly two fine representatives of these traits we hope to instill in all students," noted Plainville High School Principal, Steven LePage.
