Jack Makes Sure Everyone Feels Included

For some kids, adapting to life at a new school can be quite challenging, especially when they don’t understand English. That’s why when two new students arrived at school, 12-year-old Jack Wagoner didn’t hesitate to lend a helping hand. When the students first arrived, Jack patiently ensured they understood everything that was asked of them, whether it was by a teacher or a classmate. He always made sure the students knew they had made a friend and made sure they felt welcomed in their new school and community.

Jack also serves on the student council where he was elected two years in a row to be a voice for his peers. Jack represents each and every student and makes sure his school is an inclusive place for everyone. He is a leader in the classroom and encourages everyone around him to do their best, whether that’s by offering his notes to an absent classmate or by patiently helping a struggling student.

“Jack is an excellent student,” said the Dean of Students from his school. “Not only does he take pride in his own successes, but he looks to make sure others are successful as well. He is the type of student who seeks out the best in others and encourages them to rise to the occasion to be a better person. His presence adds so much to our school community.”

Because of his motivation to help others, Jack was chosen as a 2019 Northeast Credit Union Nice Catch winner.  We applaud his kindness and leadership!
