The Young Citizenship Award went to eighth grader Uriel Flores, son of Efren Flores and Maria Cortez. Uriel has been involved with the student council during his middle school career. At home he has helped take care of his sisters when his mother was sick. At school he helps friends with homework when they are having trouble. He continually strives to achieve his personal and academic goals, always completing homework and studying before tests to ensure he gets good grades. Uriel was presented with a certificate and a check by President Ann Chelette.
