Throughout school there are many students who embody kindness and help with others. This has led to the creation of the Liberty Legends award.

This is a new award this year that honors students who represent the school with positive attributes.

“These students through their empathy, helpfulness, and kindness create a more welcoming and more supportive environment,” assistant principal Stanton Schumacher said.

Students received a letter about a week before the inaugural Liberty Legends award ceremony stating that they had been nominated for the award.

The students didn’t know the teacher nominated them and they would find out on the stage on the day of the ceremony, which took place during the late start on April 15 in the auditorium.

Once the students were called on the stage, the teacher nominated them with their certificate and a medal. 

The students also later found out why they were nominated by reading the program and the what the teacher wrote about them.

There were 65 students who received this award for 2024, nominated by various teachers, support staff, and administrators.

“Thank you to the teachers for developing a diverse form of brilliance, thank you to the parents for being a key role in shaping these students, thank you to the students, you embody the true meaning of being a legend,” Schumacher said told the audience. 

Below are the students who received this award and what teacher nominated them.
