‘Amazing Acts of Character’ for January 2019

Fayetteville – Each month through Cumberland County Schools’ Amazing Acts of Character recognition program, schools are asked to nominate students who display character above and beyond expected behavior. One student was recently selected from individual school nominations for displaying ‘amazing acts of character’ and will be recognized during the Cumberland County Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, February 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room of CCS’ Central Services building:

Elizabeth Harris-Willette, 4th grader at Stoney Point Elementary School (SPES)According to SPES Counselor Deborah Martin and Social Worker Ashley Garrett, Elizabeth “always wants what is best for others and is keen on making sure their basic needs are met on a daily basis.” This was seen when recently, the nine year old and her mother were visiting a family friend’s house when it was extremely cold outside. Elizabeth was waiting in the car. Her mother was on the friend’s porch knocking at the door when suddenly her mother began falling to the ground. Martin and Garrett said that “Elizabeth recognized her mom was experiencing complications because of the frigid temperatures and her health.” The fourth grader called 911 and took care of her mother until EMS arrived. She was even able to explain to them the situation. “Elizabeth always puts others first and even arranges to get her homework done before she goes home so that she can take care of her family,” said Martin and Garrett. “While most young lady’s [her age] are focused on themselves, Elizabeth is focused on her family and friends. She has strong work ethic and knows that to be part of a family you have to help out when the need arises.”

The Amazing Acts of Character Committee selects winners based on school nominations. The winners are then recognized at the regular monthly meeting of the Board of Education, where they are presented a special trophy and certificate.
