- Katherine Hermsen, Brubaker Elementary School
- Student Leadership, Other
A very shy, quiet student joined Fuel Up to Play 60 early in the fall. Almost weekly when she comes to PE she will ask to "sign in to Fuel up to Play 60"..She will log on, find the challenges that she can complete...and then return to the class. As others saw her earning "prizes" and being consistent with the program, others became interested. She rarely spoke to others, and was often by herself. I asked her to help another student and she beamed! She now is a leader in her own class, offering to "teach" others how to log on and how to maneuver the web site. She is only a third grader!! I have watched her self-confidence grow due to her involvement with Fuel up to Play!
