The New Jersey School Counselor Association has awarded a fifth-grade student at Hooper Avenue Elementary School its Most Resilient Student Award. The NJSCA bestows this award to only four students annually throughout NJ in grades 4-8, and created it to honor students who have demonstrated perseverance through hardship and who have shown growth as a result of their efforts.
This student has faced many unique challenges and life-altering changes this year. Through all of this and more, she continues to log into virtual learning platforms and complete her work. She has been a responsible student and taken on the role of an adult at a young age. Most importantly, she has a smile on her face every day and remains a respectful, kind and hard working student. We are so proud of her!
