Madison was a student of mine last year in Geometry and was such a wonderful addition to my class. Aside from being kind and generous to her teachers and peers, she is one of the most dedicated students I have met in my seven years of teaching. She puts a great deal of effort in her work and never gives up on herself. During finals she worked and studied so hard but she was unable to finish her exam. Two days later, after grades were already entered, she cam to me asking if she could finish her exam just for herself, not for any extra credit. I think this dedication to academic excellence definitely deserves an award!
