Christopher Fabelo

Island Coast High School - 10th Grade

On Thursday, Feb. 15, Chris brought to the administration's attention a threat to his brother's school. Chris' action to speak up when he learned of a potential danger potentially saved lives.

Alyssa Maldonado

Diplomat Middle School - 8th Grade

Alyssa struggled academically and socially in 6th and 7th grade. As an 8th grader, she has worked hard to find personal and academic success. She is a student leader, has straight As and serves as a peer mentor. Earlier this year, she was asked by the principal to speak to the 5th graders who attended the open house, to share her struggles and successes.

Also honored:

Evan Matera

Cape Coral Elementary School - 2nd Grade

Evan saw a kindergartener that had fallen on the playground and hurt himself, and was screaming at the sight of blood. Evan got the child's bag and walked the child to the office. Every time the child saw the blood he would begin to scream. Evan continuously reassured the boy that he was going to be fine and that he was being very brave. Evan remained with the child in the office, putting on a puppet show to distract him. Evan was instrumental in calming him down and keeping him settled until the mother arrived.

Kylee Young

Gulf Middle School 8th Grade

Kylee noticed a student who was normally always drawing in a sketch book but did not appear to have one anymore. Kylee bought her a new one and gave it to her anonymously. The student usually sits alone at lunch and Kylee will often ask the student to sit with her. Kylee is always thinking of others above herself.
