Pillar: Respect

School staff says, "Travis is one of the most respectful young men I have had the privilege of working with. Throughout his entire sixth-grade year, he exemplified every Pillar of Character there is. In all honesty, Travis could be nominated for any of them. However, respect is one of his standout pillars. It didn't matter if he was dealing with peers in the classroom or his buddies on the soccer field, he showed tolerance, kindness, and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He was humble during competitions and encouraging to all around him. Regardless of any situation, Travis conducts himself with great poise."
