High School Students Honored With Students Rock Award
Plainville High School students Kelsea Fithian-Giantonio, Ryan Acey and Tyler Acey have been named recipients of the second 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. "It is a pleasure to honor Tyler, Ryan and Kelsea. They are not only excellent students, but they are also kind, giving young people who put others before themselves. We are so lucky they are part of our PHS family," said Colangelo.
Kelsea Fithian-Giantonio, a senior, was nominated by School Counselor Jennie Levin and Athletic Director John Zadnik. Tyler Acey, a junior, was nominated by high school faculty members Paris Godbout, TJ Riccardo, and Athletic Director John Zadnik. Ryan Acey, a senior, was nominated by faculty members Brendan King, Shaun Berard, and John Andros.
Kelsey, Tyler, Ryan, and their families were honored on June 11th at a high school faculty meeting.
"I am proud to be a part of this very special celebration of what it means to be a good kid. These are Plainville High School students that have not only changed this high school but will change the world. Inspiring minds are what everyone needs to find the courage to be better; these are such fine examples," said Norland.
"The Students Rock Awards are one of my favorite acknowledgments of positive student character. Positive character is the foundation to success, and I am proud of Kelsea, Ryan, and Tyler for being outstanding examples of such positive character in our learning community. These students motivate others around them to be better people, and I wish them continued success in the future," noted Plainville High School Principal, Steven LePage.
