Royster Peacemaker Award, from May 2017, was recognized recently with the donation check given to the chosen organization or association.
Each year the Royster staff select 3 kids that stand out above others and those who truly do what they can to make the world a better place for everyone. Through an anonymous donation, these students have the opportunity to select a charity to have $50 given in their name. We are so proud of these kids and the kind young people they have become.
9th grader, Jeralyn Kustanborter,chose to give to the Southeast Ks Down Syndrome association. Remarks about Jeralyn were: “She is one that sits with someone lonely at lunch. She is known for her peacemaking skills both on and off the basketball court where the coaches said she does so much to help the other members of the team improve their skills and reduce squabbles.She always does whatever is asked of her with a positive attitude and usually funny comment.”
8th grader, Karli Bash chose to give to St. Jude Children’s Reserach Hospital. Remarks about Karli: “She is always seen helping other students, seeking someone out at lunch that might be alone, or spreading her contagious smile. She has been selected multiple times as a good example and mentor for other students. And she works hard to include others in her many many organized student council activities.”
7th grader, Parker Manly chose to give to the Southeast Ks Down Syndrome association. Remarks about Parker: “Throughout the school year we have witnessed Parker be respectful, positive, and kind to both the staff and the students. Not only is he talented but he is also a hard worker. He is someone we can count on to always do the right thing. He has a great sense of humor, and he cares about the choices he makes.”
