What a special day at Southport Academy! Two hundred sixty students were honored for various outstanding efforts and achievements.
Also, sixth grader Devi Canseco Lopez received the Carolynn Weiss Spell Bowl Award from Homecroft Elementary. She earned $1,000 that will be placed into a college savings account.
School leaders also honored two former students with scholarships. Daniel Vidal and Austin McNeil – both Southport High seniors – were awarded $200 and $500, respectively, from the Southport Academy Teaches Fund.
Two teachers from Perry Meridian Middle School – Karen Watkins and Amanda Lawrie – have won the 2017 Health Care Hero for Children Award, which is given by the Indiana Emergency Medical Services for Children.

We enjoyed spending time with some of the volunteers who devote so much time to our students. During a special breakfast, we recognized tutors who support H.O.P.E. (Help Our Pupils Excel). They spend 60-90 minutes each week empowering students and giving them confidence in their ability to learn.
Thanks to the Early Childhood Academy students who performed before the breakfast.

Three teachers from Clinton Young Elementary – Ryan Gomez, Travis Hensler, and Jason Davis – have been nominated for the 2017 Health Care Hero for Children Award, which is given by the Indiana Emergency Medical Services for Children.
The trio is being honored for the promptness and care they provided to some members of Project Perfect Gentlemen during an after-school meeting. The teachers and students were outside posing for a photo when an underground beehive was inadvertently disturbed resulting in multiple stings for approximately a dozen students. The teachers hustled the kids back inside and treated each students’ stings.
We are so thankful for their quick actions!
