Charles Hooper was nominated and selected as the November Student of the Month for Guthrie Public Schools. The character trait selected for this month was compassion.
“Charles is a perfect choice,” third grade teacher Melanie Ball said in her recommendation letter.
“He is not only a wonderful and hardworking student, he’s also kind, generous and compassionate.
Ball says Charles is the classroom’s “big brother.”
“He’s always there to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on. He has a very generous, kind heart,” Ball added.
Charles was presented by Blake Wimsey with Foundation Insurance at Monday night’s Board of Education meeting.
GPS and Wimsey (pictured left) have teamed up for the fourth straight year to honor students for the character traits. Teachers and faculty select students who have displayed behavior deserving of recognition.
For his efforts, Charles was presented with a $65 gift card to Stacy’s Place.
