Harrison Hall has taken initiative to be proactive in his academics. He has advocated for himself with his teachers by independently seeking out help.

Additionally, Harrison has to miss several classes at the beginning of the year due to golf matches and he has done a great job of being proactive when he is going to be absent. Harry lets [teachers] know ahead of time and asks for his missing work as well as makes arrangements with a friend in class who can deliver his assignments to him. He has also been willing to stay after school to ensure he is keeping up with the material.

The winner is Austin Newman

Habit in Action:
Austin Newman is a great candidate for many of the attributes of a highly effective person. He is a stellar ceramic artist at FHS and has aspirations of being a professional potter. For the past two years, Austin has taken advantage of free periods in his schedule, including lunch, to perfect his throwing skills on the potter's wheel, even coming in on Saturdays to throw. He is by far the most dedicated and motivated pottery student at FHS. Austin is driven and understands the medium of which he is working with. He is actively working on his art portfolio with ambitions of attending college to study ceramics. The many facets of being proactive that Austin displays makes him deserving of this recognition.
