Age: 13 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship



Palo Verde Union School, Palo Verde Union School District

Pillar: Responsibility

School staff says, "Josiah has shown great responsibility during this time of distance learning. Education is very important to him; however, like many students, Josiah has been experiencing technical difficulties. Instead of sitting back, Josiah has pursued other options. Since he cannot log into Zoom meetings, he has been using a phone so that he can hear instruction and know how to complete assignments. It takes extra effort to do his work because he is not able to observe what the class is doing, but Josiah is willing to put in the extra time so that he knows what to do."
