Recognition Award Nomination

School Year 2020-2021

The Board of Education has created a special recognition program honoring two outstanding students from each school building per month. The focus of the program is to recognize students who excel in citizenship, academics, social, civic, volunteer, or other accomplishments within their school and the community.


Tatum, Third-Grade

Silver Lake Elementary 

Nominated by: Mrs. Geiger 

It seems like just yesterday that Tatum was a pint-sized 4-year old asking me to go get Skittles from the concession stand during her dad's basketball games. Fast forward five years later and you will find a 9-(going on 19) year old with enough Black Tiger Pride to fill every corner of Silver Lake Elementary!

To watch Tatum grow up has been the privilege of a lifetime. She is "that student" that every teacher mentions in his/her subplans; if you have any questions, ask Tatum. She is a kind, confident leader everywhere she goes -- to know her is to love her. 

I hope I am lucky enough to see what Tatum chooses as a career path in the future. I always picture her helping people and making the world a better place for all of us. 

Thank you, Tatum, for being my assistant principal at a moments notice. Someday I might just give you the walkie talkie and the keys! 

Silver Lake is blessed to be a part of your story. Thank you for being our Top Tiger!
