Age: 9 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship



Cypress Elementary School, Tulare City School District

Pillar: Responsibility

"Alayah is a wonderfully responsible person. Not only is she responsible with homework, classwork, and the other aspects that make a teacher so happy, but she is also responsible for her actions. She knows the difference between right and wrong and is accountable for the choices she makes. She uses self-control, she takes good care of her supplies, and she has a real growth mindset. The best part of all is that she does it all with a smile and a fabulous sense of humor. Alayah is a shining star and we are all so proud of her!"
