Her teachers are proud to tell us that Lia is an outstanding student and a leader at Cheldelin Middle School. She is a member and active participant of the group entitled Students for Environmental Awareness. Lia is also a leader with the student orientation program entitled WEB – Where Everyone Belongs — that helps students transition to middle school life. In the Corvallis community, Lia is a summer volunteer with the Corvallis Youth Volunteer Corp. Lia plays tennis, volleyball, and piano. She enjoys running and staying active. A major area of interest at this time, with an eye toward the future, is a career in physical therapy.
Juliana’s teachers were quite excited to nominate her for this award. They say that she is a remarkable student, mature beyond her years, with a very positive attitude and a great smile. Juliana is also a WEB leader, meeting often with her group of 6th graders, many times outside of the allotted time for this activity. She is known of her positive spirit, perseverance and her teachers tell us that she displays a remarkable sense of empathy toward others. Others know her as having an amazing singing voice and they say it would not surprise them to see her on America’s Got Talent someday.
