Cherry Avenue Middle School, Tulare City School District
Seventh-grade staff says, "Kristian is a benevolent and compassionate young man. His strength of character and resolve to 'do the right thing' is the foundation that leads him to be kind and caring to all people, regardless if those people are his close friends or not. His reward for demonstrating this value is that he is liked and respected by all, but he doesn't behave this way for that reward. He does so because he truly cares."
