Pickaway-Ross’ GRIT program is going strong with nearly 40 kids selected as a GRIT student of the week, with some students receiving multiple nominations.
Staff members nominate students whom they see exemplifying the tenets of the program: gratitude, respect, initiative and tenacity. Students get to select a GRIT-themed prize each time they win.
Weekly GRIT winners selected from August through December are (first row, from left): Jaylyn Burns, Trey Burns, Chris Christian, Allison Cunningham, Kate Cupp, Wyatt Cyrus-Butterbaugh, Preston Dailey and Madison Dingess; (second row, from left): Tamra Elliott, TJ Fulgham, Savannah Givan, Jordan Grady, Kaylin Harris, Drake Highman, Sydney Hill and Olivia Hopkins; (third row, from left): Natalie Kangur, Mikayla Kittell, Daquilla Knight, Jeremi Lynch, Nikki McDowell, Arica McGuire and Gabe McNichols; (fourth row, from left): Joey Metzger, Destiny Morris, Austin Nunley, Zannah Pariscoff, Jonathon Penn, Ellie Ratliff and Amelia Ray; (fifth row, from left): Nick Rinehart, MacKayla Rutherford, Ethan Smith, Nina Warner, Gabriel Wheeler and Brooke Yerian.
