Each month during the school year, students from MISD are selected to receive the Superintendent’s Star Award for outstanding citizenship.
Demetrius McClendon II was this month's Superintendent's Star Award.
As Eleanor Roosevelt stated, "People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built."
Demetrius, a 4th grader, was chosen from Annette Perry based on the virtues of outstanding character: citizenship, fairness, honesty, kindness, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness. He is certainly deserving of such an honor to represent Perry. We are proud of Demetrius!
